Happened in Thailand, Hua Hin. Could happen almost anywhere. I was sitting quietly with my camera near the beach, where this Zebra Dove (Geopelia striata, in Finnish seeprakyyhky) was looking for something to eat.
I turned my head and noticed a cat lurking intensively the unsuspecting bird.
The dove turned and started to move slowly under the deck chair, not noticing the motionless cat.
In a fraction of a second the cat used this moment of opportunity, jumped and caught the poor dove.

I will post every week “Thursday Twitters”, pictures of birds mainly from
Finland and Southern Africa, occasionally also taken elsewhere.
