Hi Douglas, waiting for the mice? Good picture!

Thank you, Gentlemen! Pom', I think the "great use of light" may have been by the cat, who could remain nearly invisible while, as Shakespeare would say, "surveying vantage"; esse, I thank you very much and certainly value your praise; Jos, there is no doubt of it, and perhaps rats also, it was impossible to give scale--and nearly impossible to get a photograph--but this was one of three extremely friendly, extremely fast and EXTREMELY LARGE cats prowling the railway yard! I feel quite fortunate to have been able to capture this single image, as the day was fading fast and it was cold and windy enough that even the cats were happy to be in thick fur!

Thank you, Niels! I'm glad you enjoyed--what the cat would let us see of him!
