crop 2 Moki Ball January 19 _DSC3481.jpg

Lessons in snow retrieving

Notice the eyes focused on the ball - never flinching to loose sight of the ball, until it is thrown and he is totally lost to
where the ball went.

Spent a lot of time walking to retrieve the ball so Moki could stare at it..

Nikon D700
1/250s f/6.3 at 90.0mm iso1000 full exif

other sizes: small medium large original

A precious moment captured. Love the snow on his black fur. I'm sure he'll figure it out at some point. :) V.

This is great! Love Moki's expression and the snowy background!

Fantastic photo and very good processing. The story is funny but so true of our pets. They do it to let us know who is in control.

Very cute capture. Like the intense concentration of his eyes.

AHHHH, the ball. Jiggs is totally and completely obsessed. In the snow we switch from a tennis ball and chuckit to a voit playground ball. I must have kicked it 300 times today.

This is a fabulous lab shot

Had to chuckle at your caption Joan. It looks so wintry there!

He's thinking... 'how much longer is she going to want to play with that ball? I want to get by the fire' haha. Lovely shot.
