CIFs (Cats In Flight) - apologies to people allergic to cat pix (just don't look)
In reply to Wormsmeat, Feb 15, 2014

Dear all,

Here are a few pictures of our neighbor's cats, Ethel and Lucy. Ethel is an Olympic cathlete (sorry); Lucy is very shy.

These pictures were mostly taken at very high ISO (up to 25600) to get a fast shutter speed, and their quality is pretty low. But for people who are not afraid of cats, they may be amusing.

I had to hold my camera with one hand, and with the other hand I waved around a little fishing rod with a feather "birdie" at the end. Not the easiest situation, but at least I could somewhat anticipate when Ethel would jump. And this cat really can jump!

All the best,


This cat does not hold back.

Sometimes it was hard to predict how high she would go...

Lucy watches, in awe of Ethel's knowledge of physics.

Reaching for the stars.

Boy, do I wish I had held the camera higher on this one.

Finally, her face was in the picture.
