"Um, I have a ball to catch"

  1. Ella is ball OBSESSED. And it shows.
    Taken with the D300 and 50mm f1.8.
    I know what I'll do better next time.

    She was kicking up mud and grass everywhere. This was, I think, the first day all week it hadn't rained.

    And the sun was in and out.

    Nice shots Rebecca! I wish my dogs were more into balls and retrieving toys!
     
  7. Oh yes, I have two of those: will stare under the chair that the ball last rolled under........for HOURS! :rolleyes:

    I really love the 2nd to last one, to me, that's the epitome of the ball-obsessed dog. :biggrin:

    nicely done!!
     
  9. Thank you!
    It's kind of a plus, in some ways. I can easily distract her from OTHER things that she doesn't like so much, if I have a ball in my hand.:biggrin:
     

  10. Thank you. hahahaha, I know how that is! Ella gets like that with rabbits. If we're outside and she sees a rabbit somewhere, the next time we go out, she'll search that same spot.

    I can be in the other room, simply TOUCH her Orbee, and she comes FLYING into the room.:biggrin:
     
  11. Thank you very much.:biggrin:

    Wonderful series. I wish I could get the knack of taking action shots of my dog. He's so fast, and is more black than white which hinders me.
