Is that cat performing at New York's Shakespeare in the Park?

No, that would be a stretch. But what is literally a stretch is this British Shorthair jumping eight inches off the ground in desperate pursuit of a tortoiseshell butterfly in Denmark.

And lucky for 8-year-old Misha, her owner, and photographer, Kemal Selimovic was there to bear witness.

"She didn't catch the butterfly so she settled down for a rest looking out for another bit of fun," Selimovic said.

Misha may not have caught the insect, but she's got our attention.
