Readers’ wildlife photos

I’m getting a bit antsy about my waning tank of photos, so if you have some, please send them in. Today we have an unusual contribution: the cats of Key West, in particular those associated with Ernest Hemingway’s house. As you remember, I featured some of these cats, many of whom are polydactylous, last Caturday.

The photos were taken by James Blilie, whose descriptions are indented:

Here are some non-wild life photos I took in Key West.  The cats at the Hemingway House.


And the cat paw prints in the concrete walkways at the house:

Also, one of the Red Jungle FowlGallus gallus, that roam Key West:

    Nice photos. You have to get a high speed camera for those pictures.

      Dang, jblilie, let me know next time you’re in town. We coulda met up at The Green Parrot, right down the street from Papa’s house. I got a place across the street, near the courthouse.

      Nice pictures, BTW.

    Great series of “wildlife” shots. Cat’s are rest are so relaxing!

    Great pictures! The second cat looks exactly like mine, and mine is also polydactyl. So, my cat might descend from literary royalty 🙂

      They are great pics! And the tabby looks just like the one that adopted me, who’s sleeping in the sun at my feet right now.

        In the southern hemisphere, that means cats are sunning themselves all over the world, 24 – 7. 😄

          Well, maybe the southern hemisphere is irrelevant. But still…
