Her Majesty, Queen Emeraldas, has fallen under the spell of Maggie’s sewing area.
Like so many cats before her, she’s discovered that the space just to the right of the sewing machine is the perfect size for a cat to snooze. It’s got a nice view of the back yard; it’s elevated, away from other cats; and gets plenty of sunlight in the afternoon.
I’ve been trying to get a picture of her on the table for weeks now.
Either the sees me coming and hides or the backlighting from the window is too bright for the camera. Even the much-vaunted iPhone 12 camera can’t work miracles of that magnitude.
Fortunately, Maggie’s sewing chair is almost as attractive a feline hangout as the table.
This shot, taken from across the room–with the aforementioned iPhone 12–has been tweaked a bit to improve the contrast enough to make her eyes visible. But at least it’s recognizably a picture of a cat. A specific cat, even.
Even at such extreme distances, she was distinctly dubious about the whole venture.
But I’m declaring victory. Because sometimes you have to shoot the arrow and then draw the target.
