THE SPARKY REPORT #36

Leap1sm

Gotcha!

Sparky the hunter! Yes, Sparky has demonstrated great proficiency as a hunter. She's a natural at it, and is systematically ridding the farm of mice and shrews and voles. In the above picture Sparky has just caught a shrew

Leap2sm

Playtime! Take that, varmint!

Sparky really gets into the hunting thing. She leaps. She twirls. She pounces. I was able to get a couple of good shots of Sparky's acrobatics as she flung her varmint about.

Getting some air while keeping her eye on the prize.

 

Leap4sm

Catching some more air as Sparky flings her shrew and then leaps after it!

So what does Sparky do after a spirited session of acrobatics? She takes a well-deserved nap, of course! And what better place for a nap than a sun-warmed sidewalk! (And if the sun is too bright for a nap, just cover your eyes!)

Zzzzzz . . .

 P.S. Remember, to see a large version of the above pictures, just click on the picture. If nothing else, the two "air" pictures are humorous enough to warrant a second look!

  1. Jean, another Sparky fan suggested writing a children’s book. I hadn’t thought of a magazine! Must add that to the list of possibilities for Sparky. Now, if only I could get some videos of her and post them on YouTube . . .

    Artemisia, *do not* give Sparky ideas! Juggling! I think
    she already  has a head start, what with her flinging varmints all over the
    place. In fact, I’ve been watching her “juggle” a freshly caught vole today and
    she was doing a fine job until it started to rain. We’re now inside, awaiting
    the return of the sun. It’s been a weird day, with alternating rain and
    sunshine, so Sparky (and I) have been dashing inside and then outside—she to do
    some more hunting, and me to transplanting tomatoes and other veggies. If I see
    Sparky juggling, I’ll try to catch it on my camera!
