I previously posted some shots of this cat on another thread, but this is probably where he/she belongs. Photos are not the same as on the other thread.

The cat was about 10k from TR on the road to Nossob. He posed for about 150 photos before going over the dune. The last shot. The light was perfect. He/she was spotted by my wife, I drove right past. Stopped fast enough though. What surprised us was the folks who drove right past not interested.
