This is Kody looking out the motel window at the owner of the motel, YoYo, doing her morning rounds. Not sure if she liked the visitors or the scraps they might leave. Lens aperture f/3.5, shutter speed 1/320sec, focal length 4mm, ISO 80.

Thanks, I was pleased with the results, Kody meowed & I looked up to see what she was on about & just had time to grab the camera before they both moved.

I didn't let them get to close, I wasn't too sure of that look either. Yoyo would come around every morning to deliver breakfast & check if there were any left-overs from the night before, for her. This was a wonderful place to stay, everyone was so friendly.
