Excitement in the backyard
We have had one busy week with the parents both being super busy at work to the point where we think it is going to be a 12 day week.
In the midst of all this god always finds a way to throw some excitement our way to amuse us and the kids even if we are cooped up in our living room.
A wild cat of some kind decided to visit our backyard today. San of course assumed it was a raccoon perched on the fence. We (the kids and me) were pretty sure raccoons are not that big and do not look that muscular!
So we mounted the 70-200 and the extender to make it a 140-400mm and decided to observe the cat.
It was very pretty (and dangerous I am sure). Could not hold the heavy lens with my hand steady as there was a 30 degree temperature difference between the living room and the backyard and was also worried about the thing having rabies or making a dash for me.
Here are some pictures and a video. The kids are now scared of going in the backyard alone. That will pass. The wild cat gracefully made an exit into the forest like area behind our house.
We were happy for the temporary amusement..
