I like this installation!

Whew, I am so glad that those black objects are bird because initially I thought they might be bats...not my favorite flying animals although they are good for the environment. With the cat below the birds, there is a bit of humor in this piece! Not for the birds, tho.

What an interesting building! The birds all over it are amazing and the cat seems to think so, too! What a fun, terrific capture, JM! I love it!

Wow - I would have never thought that this would be such an old installation! It looks fabulous.

Wonderful to see..
It warms my heart to know they are already so close..
I will have to wait until April though to see them..
I can't believe you were in the right place at the right time (again) to capture this lovely image. Well done..

Tres magnifique...that ol' cat's got its back up! But the thought it could catch all those birds is just too much to swallow! :-)

Halcyon said...

Very interesting piece. I love the black and white against the blue sky. Really nice!

Kathy said...

The cat is thinking "I hit the jackpot!"

Jack said...

This art work has such an innocent feeling to it.

At first i thought this way real! But even more amazing that its a piece of art. The cat totally tops it!

I agree with all the comments but would add that the architectural shape is intriguing. The cat is perfect and I thought he was real!
