wandering through your front page again, and remembering this one with great glee, I wondered why I never actually commented on it.
Yes, it's securely in my Favorite images, but still...

Such a grand image and it still makes me giggle when I see it.

I expect the cat survived the "feast"?

Dang, that's good.

Absolutely perfect timing on that shot! What a way to start out your lighting challenge career!! I look forward to seeing more. (and what an awesome cat! I would have liked the chicken, too. Too bad he didn't stay around more more challenges. ;P)

O Wow! This is so fabulous! Thank you for your wonderful comments and votes.
It is thrilling to have a 1st place especially during TPL with such incredible competition.

My cat is addicted to "Temptations" chicken flavored treats. When the camera comes out, her tail goes up
and she follows me around waiting to be filmed. I sprinkled some treats next to the feathers and had to stop shooting
to pull the feathers out of her mouth. I did not realize that I had used guinea hen feathers, so of course it tasted like chicken.

Thanks again guys and Go Hit Squad!

YEAH, way to go Jane! Congrats on your first of many blue ribbons!

WTG, Jane! Absolutely fantastic image and I'm with everyone else - how many shots did you have to take and how ever did you get him to lick his chops like that? Congratulations on the blue.

How you got that cat to lick like that at the time you pressed the shutter speed is excellent, did you show it some food??
I guess you took quite a few shots.

Front page for sure.

Delightful! Nice set up; well done cat wrangling and then capturing that satisfied slurp.

Cage was a bit small for a guinea-fowl, but good idea and quite well executed except for the random blown out areas
