Soak It Up

The sun doesn't generally make a regular appearance in these parts, so when it does, Hayduke takes it all in!

...a sleepy, heat-induced cat coma. Beautiful photo (and beautiful kitty too). I love watching our cat slip in and out of sleep while in a sunbeam.

Hayduke has such sleepy eyes. Nap time is just on the horizon, I bet. Beautiful kitty and reflection!

Sistertex said...

Beautiful cat and certainly worth having two of. ;) Looks like the sun is slowly lulling the kitty to sleep! Very nice!

The reflection lifts this above the ordinary cat picture. Very nice.

An absolutely charming cat portrait, expresses nothing so much harmony, like a cat that feels comfortable. Wonderful Easter for you.

RuneE said...

Not one cat - but two! :-)

I like this kind of "double take" using windows and animals or people. It gives an extra bit of life.

Thom said...

Excellent shot my friend. I love the reflection. And the cat looks so content. Happy Easter to you and your family :)

Oh, the warmth of the sun. Almost puts me to sleep. Happy Easter.

Love that Hayduke name. Very nice portrait with well balanced lighting. I like the way you can really see Hayduke in the reflection. My wife had a cat once whose name was "Hey You."

namaki said...

looks just like its twin ! that's great !

Martha Z said...

Great portrait of Heyduke soaking up the sun. The trestle make a perfect subject for monochrome. As usual your shots are perfectly composed and in perfect focus. You make me want to strive harder and that's a good thing.

Heyduke is a cool name for a very cool cat~ Love the reflection of him. Where do you live that you have so little sunshine... Happy Easter

zem said...

Great shot and reflection. He is adept at sleeping while sitting up - lovely kitty.

What a beautiful cat! Great reflection :)

Greyscale Territory said...

Sweet and adorable! The closed eyes create a real sense of peace and happiness! And the reflection adds to the depth of the feelings!

You couldn't pose that shot. Well captured!

I truly adore this photo. Your wonderfully reflected cat reminds me of our old friend Elvis DeBoombah. (grin) Wonderful choice for Weekend Reflections.
