I was taking macro shot of bugs when I ran out of light. Frankie was on top of our light blue car which was parked in the driveway so I headed that way to see if I could get some good shots of him. About then, a loud noise--like thwacking against a metal flagpole--began. It came from a few blocks away where a new building is being constructed. Obviously, the noise alarmed Frankie. I couldn't reach enough to get him off the car and comfort him, so talked to him through the loud banging as I shot photos. After a minute or so, he calmed down.
