Ah yes!
Once the big black and white tom, who we called "Tortellini" because we were told it was Sicilian for "Tough Guy", Was patrolling the garden path between my daughter (about 8) and her Grandparents. A humming bird flitted near and Tort reared back on his hind legs, swooped his front paws together like a single applause and -- by gum! he caught the beauty between them. I was amazed. My in-laws were astonished, My daughter became intently curious and, as time stood still, Tort was the most awe struck of us all. Or maybe we all went up to the hummingbird's super fast perception of time. Whatever, Tort opened his paws and the flash was gone, unharmed, releasing us all.
