Spring must be Shiva’s favorite time of the year.
Cold mornings, chirping birdies and fresh meat.
The return of the finches that live under the eaves of my house and the hatching of their eggs is just too much for my cats.
Shiva somehow always manages to get on the roof even after we trimmed and cut down the nearby trees.
Getting up there is one thing but Shiva, the dare-devil, has no fear of getting off the roof.
The first time I witnessed this, I couldn’t believe my eyes.
Shiva would leap from the roof of my garage about 10 feet onto my covered outdoor barbecue.
This morning, I also saw her reaching down with her paw as she sat on the edge of the roof.
Had I more time and thought about it, I would have reached for my Canon 40D instead of the 5DMark2.
I guess I was thinking of shooting some video.
With the 40D, I’m certain, I would have caught another frame with Shiva in the air.
At 3 frames-a-second, timing is everything.
I was a little late or else, I would have had a better picture of Shiva.
How say you? Take a look.
A split second before, Shiva’s head would have been frozen in time against a better background.
Instead her head is against the hedge. This is mere speculation on my part.
If I have another opportunity at this picture, I will surely grab the 40D for the quicker frame rate.
