It survived, though!
Julie was just looking, and I decided to try a slightly different angle and pressed the shutter again…
And at that exact moment, hearing the camera start the analysis of the picture, Julie decided to move into an ambush spot. He managed to get all the way down the step out of frame, lie down and then poke his ear back in the frame a trifle.
He will drive you nuts.
And when Gus came down he pounced out of hiding and ran in front, to make Gus jump back. Julie then jumped up to the window sill above. Gus kept coming down and after he passed the landing Julie jumped down from the sill and bounced after him and made him scamper.
