Rapt attention

4 02 2009

I shot this photo of Jasper on an ottoman in the living room during our May 2008 Garden Cub meeting. Weedette Regina appeared in several of the photos before this one and she was giving us a presentation on attracting birds and butterflies to the garden. I hadn’t even seen this photo until tonight. He looks mesmerized by Regina’s lecture, doesn’t he? Ooh, ooh, bring me some of dem birds. Oh, if I only had opposable thumbs, I’d be taking notes right now!

We are not amused.

9 05 2008

Calling it a day, I came upstairs a few minutes ago and as I neared the top of the stairs, Jasper was in his usual spot by the living room step, basking in the sunshine. I had my camera in hand and was planning to go out in the front yard garden to see what blooms were now illuminated by the elusive sunshine (it’s been raining all day). I stopped short and knew it was a photo op in the making. Jasper did his usual staredown, hoping I was headed to the kitchen to indulge the carnivore in him (I wasn’t). While I waited for the clouds to pass and the sunbeam to come again, he gave me this look through the whole session. I like to call it his “we are not amused” look. Wonder what he’s thinking? (“look deep into my eyes…yes, that’s it…you will feed me meat now…do not look away….it is futile to resist me…put the camera down…you are under my spell...)
