Looking back to November 2017, to leaves long gone. The first two pictures are from the November 11th trek to the creek depicted in Part 1. Scan the first photo closely and you might see a red dot on the far bank; it’s the leaf that was the source of so much startling reflected color and shape in some of the Part 1 pictures. You can also see the twisty double tree, a major shadow-maker.
You just never know what visuals will pop up on this creek!
“Hey,” Ultraviolet pads up and chimes in. “I would flat sure pounce on that thingamabob in the water.”
“Nothing is there, you’d only get sopping wet.”
On to the November 26 pictures later in the month, later in the day, with more subdued colors.
“Meow! I could so hunt in that light. It’s like, crepuscular.”
“It wasn’t quite twilight, sweet one. Close, though.”
“I should have been let out to walk down there with y’all so I could hunt!”
“Well no, you need a hypoallergenic diet, with hydrolyzed protein. Fresh game isn’t on your menu.”
“Phssssst! I mean, Fish! I could scoop up fish from the creek. Hydrolyzed doesn’t sound tasty!”
“It will taste tasty! You’ll see when it arrives. Haven’t seen any fish in the creek, and fish are highly allergenic anyway.”
“That study sounds fishy to me! Send me the link! I’ll have to look into that myself!”
“It’s ok to dream, it’ll help us get through this cold spell. That’s how I got through feeling so ill over the holidays.”
“Fish needs to be devoured with some good stout creek water, slightly bubbly, a little foam on top.”
“Um … dream on, kitty.” High in the trees, the sweetgum seedpods were still greenish.
“Now I could so climb up those trees! Those squirrels that tromple on our roof at night, I’d stop them in their tracks!”
“It’s freakishly cold out there now, UV. You wouldn’t much like it.”
“Girlfriend, have you seen me? I’m furry!”
“Hey here’s a toy mouse for you.” (Blap, scuffle, swish. She springs high in the air, lands, tilts her head this way and that, eyes locked on the mouse, as she angles in for the next strike. Our little hunter kitty got toy mice for Christmas and she’s already lost the gray one.)
“We’ll talk again.” (SMACK, snort, jump, thump, bump, swish, bump bump.)
Bonus picture, Ultraviolet, with souped up color.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
