Cats with cameras

So what would your cat take pictures of if you gave it a camera?

A fellow in rural Germany wondered what his outdoor cat, Mr. Lee, got up to during the day, and conceived - and created - a camera that could be rigged to automagically take pictures now and then, and could be worn on the cat's collar.

The design is beyond my ken, technologically speaking, but I bet many of you can understand and could duplicate it.

While I'll always be an indoor-cat advocate, the photos are absolutely amazing! (Links to four set of "trip" photos are at the bottom of the page linked above.) (Note to the ophidiophobic readers of this blog - you know who you are - there is an [uneventful] encounter with a snake during trip 3, so you may wish to skip it.)

Cool stuff!

In an odd-ish co-incidence, I just saw the tail-end of a report on this while clicking through the TV channels before going to bed last night. The "odd-ish" part is what channel it was on: Fox News, of all people.

It did appear to be fair and balanced, though, at least the little bit I saw.
