Staring into the Bottom of a Glass - Paignton, 16.8.18

When disturbed, Jersey Tigers often head for cover under branches, etc. This one headed through my front door, coming to rest halfway up the stairs. Wishing to set it free outside again, I covered it with a glass, getting the chance of these interesting shots.

  

Once freed, it landed on a window, producing this weird effect against the reflection on the glass.
