Comments - Terrific image of a cat intently watching goldfish swimming in a glass bowl, waiting for the opportunity to pounce. A small fishing net lies next to a low ceramic planter filled with water, rocks, and grasses. An interesting variant of this popular subject with the background softly shaded from yellow green to orange. A great design, nicely composed.
