PotM Calendar

The Photo of the Month (see gallery) is a year round calendar of selected nature images and stories with contributions from visitors, fellow photographers and friends.
 When it comes to nature photography, it's not only those fascinating tales of high adventure that often accompany talent and skill for a fabulous result. If a picture is truly worth more than a thousand words then a well-timed shot, or a well framed one, can say just as much about you as a photographer too! So if you'd like to showcase one of your pictures here, free, for one calendar month with a short story on how you managed to come by it, then this page is for you.

Cousins by Roger Cox

Long before cats became household celebrities of film, theatre, TV and the internet, they lived in forests and jungles like many of their larger relatives today. Sadly, for the same reason, some of the smaller lesser-known wild ones have found themselves in zoos and sanctuaries enclosed alongside their more prominent great cousins. As in the case of this Asian leopard cat; seen here  sinking its teeth and claws into a henhouse dinner at Thrigby Hall Wildlife Gardens.
 Much like a house cat in size and appearance, you might think this a picture of a hungry feral tabby that had found its way into a chicken coup! A misapprehension, and yet one closer to the truth than you might realise. In South East Asia these animals are sometimes kept as "pets," but because of their wild nature are often bred with domestic cats to produce more friendly hybrids like the Bengal cat or Siamese Flame Point.
 So who knows? Perhaps that social media superstar purring on your lap, or asleep in its basket under your bed could well be harbouring one or two innate abilities of a particular second cousin once removed. With a pedigree of predatory instincts, all too eager to claw their way back into that forest or jungle, from whence they came.
