June Theme Day (Feet)


Theme Day time again, and FEET are in the spotlight!

I caught one of my cats playing with a lizard one day and hurried out to aid the escape, but the lizard made a gallant effort on his own. At left the cat's paw takes a break from its swats, and the lizard makes a getaway by climbing onto a stick.

Click on the photo for a larger version, and you can see how hard the lizard's feet are working at survival.

Babooska, I got the photo by distracting the cat and placing the stick where the lizard could reach it. After the "photo shoot," I just lifted the stick with the lizard and carried him to safety!

I always aid the escape too. Much to my two cats' great annoyance. :) Great shot!

What a great photo! The lizard is in such sharp focus and his color is so vivid.

Happy theme day!

Anoles are so entertaining...I hate it when I find them dessicated inside of things...makes me feel guilty.

Great photo! He's very cute!

I'm so impressed by this capture! not easy to get the action and those colors and cripsness in one shot. The lizard is very good looking and the cat's paw (to someone as big as me) is so cute.

Very creative and excellent photo!

I feel like I'm watching a play or a commercial. Very clever and inventive.

Brilliant choice for Theme Day. Yes, you can really see how he is working hard to get moving. Now I'd not have thought of a lizard and I'm surrounded by them!
