There's always a challenge I've found with photographing black cats.
If you didn't look close you might miss the little white chin and whiskers. But, I love the darkness of her fur with the sun hitting her back against the backdrop of the greenery from outside.
Miss Boo is sitting next to her mischievous brother, Ping in this picture and she is warily watching him, because he loves to bedevil her. He reminds of that kid brother who would touch the sister in the back of the car and the Sister would cry out: "he touched me"!
***On the other paw...
The past week or so we've had tremendously violent thunderstorms each and every afternoon. The temperatures have reached into the 100's which is a bit unusual for this time of the year. It's been reported locally the last time be had back to back 100+ degree days was in 2000. The high temperatures heat up the atmosphere and by late afternoon the thunderstorms arrive. We've had down drafts that have caused 60mph wind gusts which have toppled trees in some neighborhoods causing lots of damages. It's too early in the season for this. I worry about the tropical outlook for this season in the Atlantic basin, not to mention the worrisome Gulf. Violent weather seems to be breaking out all over this spring/summer.
