Camouflage Kitty

I've always wondered about some of the strange patterns found on domestic cats. Many are colors that would stick out plainly, ruining the camouflage that predators usually use to hide from prey. It all makes sense when you remember that many animals cannot see color. This black and white photograph of a tortoiseshell cat shows how effectively she blends in with the surroundings, despite her bright orange splotches and stripes.

This is of the 15 cats that lived with Mr. Youse, sitting among the ruins of a side room that fell off the house a few months after this photograph was made. The house was surrounded by the dried stalks of tall weeds, perfect hunting territory for a hungry kitty!

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
