Whilst stalking a skittish Stonechat, which was flitting annoyingly from teazel to teazel, I happened to glance down onto the beach and saw this lovely Border Collie being exercised by its owner and couldn't resist this shot. I hope you like it.

Thank you all so much for the overwhelming response to my Waxwing upload - more to come but I don't want to bore anybody! Smile A special "thank you" to Richard (Doghouse 756) for the excellent mod which really makes the image "pop"
