    Edit Photo Details When your cat gets a whiff of his food   #cat #shadows #light #home #jumping #leap #weloveourpets
    My cats love getting a bit of sun everyday so I allow them into our balcony for a few minutes supervised of course as they jump at the sight of birds. So the moment I empty the laundry basket they jump in and sit there. This right here is Momo the foodie who will rush when he gets a whiff of his food so I wanted to capture his eagerness and I had my husband open his favorite tin knowing full well he will jump the moment he senses it. Kept my fingers glued to the shutter and managed to get this.

    This is the perfect example of anticipating the moment, Neelima! You had done your "research" in knowing your cat's behavior and you prepared for Momo's predictable reaction to food (though, I also jump at the sound of dinner being made) and were there to catch the moment. The microcomposition in the teeny bit of light between his shadow and the shade of the room makes this moment come together for me.
