Unphotographed: The Hunt

Will and I put out some bread for the birds to give us something to watch from our posi on the couch. The large gathering drew the attention of Angel the neighbours lithe little black cat. She tried the run and pounce first and then the hide and sneak but her final move albeit unsuccessful was the most spectacular.
She climbed into the grapefruit tree right outside our lounge window and sat and watched and waited and waited and waited. Eventually the birds, lulled into a false sense of security, gathered in large numbers around the bread which was just under the periphery of the tree. And then she jumped down and out of the tree and into the mass. Cat went down, birds flew up... cat slunk off looking quite miffed.
