The adventurous cat, shown perched 1,090 feet above the Spanish city of Calpe (or ‘Calp’), is just one among many feral cats living on Penyon d’Ifac — that is, the main meowntain in Alicante Spain’s Peñón de Ifach Nature Reserve. Undoubtedly, he’s enjoying the purrfect view.

Ukranian sports photographer Aleksandr Osipov took this photograph, which he calls “King of the Hill,” using a Canon EOS 5D Mark III camera set at 35mm, 1/1250 of a second, f/7.1, and ISO 320.
