The Battle Plan
The stealthy little rodent makes his move. Determination on his face, sneakiness in his gait.
Down and dirty, flat as a pancake is the approach, learned in rodent military school. Eyes squinted, not to reflect any intent.
Raise the ears so gently, reaching one paw at a time. Check the wind speed and direction, sniff out the prize, listen for any sign you might be exposed to the enemy. Keep eyes peeled for detection. Careful, quiet, sly… the quarry remains unaware.
Ready, pounce. Surprise the enemy with stealth and an awesome leap into the food. Ha! Scared out of his skin almost. Mission accomplished.
To the victor goes the spoils. Num, num, num….
The loser retreats and thinks how to recapture the food saucer. But meanwhile… waiting and planning brings its own problems.
The gallery looks on. Cheering from the sidelines.
The little bugger has “a stance that says I mean business, beat it.” He even has a grin on his face, the little heathen. The winner is about to be dethroned. OR IS HE!!!
Let’s see what he does with a new opponent.
The chase is on!
Did you have any doubt!
No need for the sourpuss… there is always the Sparrow brigade.
Like Splish, Splash, I’m Taking A Bath, this furry battle was also shot through a window, so some of the scenes have some window glare.
Up next… for GBBD, a collection of pretty field finds and slices of garden life slipped in between, a picture packed post!
