Cat of Many Shadows

 Cat, watching, stalking
Watching people watching you
In cage of shadows
See more shadows at Shadow Shot Sunday hosted by Tracy at Hey Harriet.

Oh, Martha, these are fantastic!! Absolutely incredible captures! I love zoos if only because they help save so many species that are so rapidly disappearing, but also because I love having the opportunity to see animals like these which would be impossible without the zoos. And the San Diego Zoo is terrific! Hope your weekend is off to a great start! Enjoy!

Amazing to see the chain link pattern on the cat. Super shadow shots and haiku!

An intriguing cage of shadows! And the body language of this cat is quite intimidating!

Yeow! or I should say Meow! I'm glad to be seeing the shadow from the safe side of the chain link fence. Great shadow shot and capture of the kitty!

That cat means business! The shadows just emphasise the intent.

He's looking for some lunch!

That is great--in the first shot, the shadow looks almost like scales on the cat. Very nice.

Martha, I am (again) awed by your talent. The haiku is perfect as are the shadows. You can see the strength of this wild animal.

I have mixed feelings about zoos now, but for the most part I love them for the reasons that you and Sylvia (first comment) express so well.
Just a beautiful post!
