Oh high alert late afternoon, Golden Girl Tiny reads the sights and sounds and smells of the landscape that is her territory to defend.
The pale midwinter light paints her fur and the surrounding vegetation a subtler version of Maxfield Parrish's dazzling "Daybreak" palette of midsummer.
Update: "Tiny is extremely round. 'Reminds me of birds who puff out their feathers to insulate themselves," writes our imail correspondent. "Sort of like this," we i'd back with a link to the above image found in a google image search for "puffed bird." Separated at birth?
Update II: All animals all the time at Modulator's Friday Ark #231.
