And a bird, Cisticola juncidis! :)
Thesis is written and defended! Yay! So I have a little more time now and I just wanted to post some photos of my new kitten, Java. I found her on the roadside along with two siblings in early June, while walking home. They were tiny, starving and scared, and there was no sign of their mom being around. I suspect they were just dumped there by someone. :(
So, I took this kitten home and two kids from my neighborhood who were also passing by took her two siblings with them. She's adorable and very talkative (unlike Mia who barely ever makes a sound!)
1. A week after I found her.
2. A month after.
3. A month after, with my other cat Mia. One month was also how long it took for Mia to accept the new resident, before that she would just hiss at her and keep a distance, but now they're getting along well.
I'd like to say I'm back to posting to moblog, but it's probably not definitive and it won't happen for a few more months. I've been away mainly because I'm working on (and now beginning to write) my master's thesis and I don't have time for everything I used to have time for. Some things I just had to put aside and sadly Moblog was one of those things. I hope to be back sometime after July, maybe.
But in the meanwhile... who can resist spring? :)

This leaf beetle (Lachnaia tristigma, I think) didn't want anything to do with my approaching camera. But, fortunately, I was quick enough to capture what I assume is a disapproving look as he stretched his wings to lift off.
A long and unusually rainy winter this year resulted in these two waterfalls near my home looking like this. I had never seen them so full of water.
Just so you have an idea, the first shot here and this shot from 2010
are of the same waterfall!
A Great Tit and a singing Blue Tit.
