The Same Thing

Early this morning I caught a glimpse of an animal I thought was a fox as it disappeared into the foliage beside the creek, and I crept up very slowly. Ah, it’s not a fox but a yellow cat. Actually a kitten stalking some unseen prey, or merely practicing. I moved in a bit closer and watched for a while. Then he/she turned and saw me. I got off a couple of shots.

I thought of what I read a long time ago about a Souix warrior who is hunting in the woods and he stops at what he thinks is movement. He wonders: Is that a tree stump disguised as a bear, or a bear disguised as a tree stump?

Fox or Kitten. Essentially the same thing.
