I hope everyone had a fantastic fourth! I have finally caught up with the results for the Photo of the Week Poll. Read More
This blog went daily a year ago and I have been fortunate to have a lot of new followers come along for the ride since. I have recently began reposting popular photos I placed on this blog a year ago. This Blog post continues to be one of the most viewed on ISBAA. The photo at the bottom of this post, while not technically well done, is my favorite!
When I saw that the weekly photo challenge was “Companionable,” I could not think of a better group of my pictures that would illustrate this theme than what I photographed at the DockDogs event. (Please do not miss the slideshow at the bottom of this post to see even more images from this outstanding event.)
Everyone and every animal truly seemed to enjoy this competition.
The championships consisted of different events where dogs were judged on their longest leap into a pool and on how fast they could retrieve an object after diving into a pool. Please see more photos below. Read More
This blog went daily a year ago last month and I have been fortunate to have a lot of new followers come along for the ride since. Here is one of the more popular posts on this blog from a year ago this week.
But on this particular morning, the SQ took the fall. I first noticed him eyeing the feeder from a nearby porch rail and zoomed in on the culprit.
He jumped and in a split second lost his footing on the feeder and went airborne as a handful of bird grub trailed behind. I fired off 4-5 frames of this slip, but this was the moment I chose. I love the way the feed seems to fill the entire frame.
Ultimately, the SQ lost the battle but won the war. He creeped back on the porch floor to gobble up all the feed he knocked down during his flight. My two dogs were not happy.
I photographed this scene near Occoquan, Va. Read More
