Camera Critters


Our friends the Guineafowl, visiting from the neighbor's farm. I hope they come around next Japanese Beetle season, perhaps they might put a dent in the JB population.


Prissy, protesting about having her picture taken rather than being petted.


The dark spot on her nose is just dew from the grass.




That alert predator "I see something" look.

  1. She looks a bit like my Fiona. Love the guinea fowl, their coloring is great. I think chickens also eat Japanese beetles, as well as boxelder bugs!

  2. Those birds have such a cute pattern! Almost polka dot. And the cat.... the cat is a beauty. Although, every time I see a cat I feel a guilt.I lost my cat in 1999, and it was my fault. Give your cat a pat from me, will you please?

  14. Prissy stalks the Guineafowl from afar, or she did when they first showed up. Mostly it's been too hot for her to stalk anything, lol. They're bigger than something she would like to take on.

  15. Those Guineas are interesting! I have never had any of those but have had most other farm birds!


    Your kitty is just beautiful! I had one named Prissy many years ago! 9Always have had cats- still do!)

  16. Those spotted birds, I wonder what that is in swedish, I cant't recall ever to have seen them. And as for Prissy, not all beauties like to be models :)

  17. Hi Sweet Bay, those guineas are so pretty, I would love to have them move in here! Plenty of buggies for their bellies! Prissy is a good huntress too, and quite beautiful. I am sure she keeps every other creature in line. :-)

  18. The Guinea fowl are really neat, we just saw some the other day at a Kangaroo farm of all places.
    Your cat is so sweet, it makes me miss having one.

  21. Guineafowl have the most amazing pattern on their feathers....simply lovely...Is this the hound's tooth we try to recreate in winter wool coats?

    Your kitty is adorably sweet...that is a great capture of the predatory cat look! I think Coal would love to have the freedom Prissy has~~to wander in a beautiful garden and spend time with the gardener. It's a good life.

  22. The JB here in Iowa were just awful this year! Love the Guinea fowl, years ago I lived on a farm that had guinea hens, I loved the sound they made at night as they settled in the trees for the night.

  23. Thank you for your comments everyone!

    Gail the pattern on the Guineas does look like houndstooth doesn't it? I don't think they're related though -- the houndstooth pattern originated in Scotland.

  24. The guineas are cool looking. Your kitty is very photogenic! Great pics!

  25. I've seen that last look quite a bit too! That's usually about the time I scoop my cat up and haul him back inside before he kills something! ;-) Your kitty is adorable and what a great garden she has to roam around in...
