This is "Buddy" - who was out walking with his owner in the woods, whilst I was busy looking for wildlife, during our holiday on Cape Cod last year. His owner explained that Buddy was a recent acquisition from an Animal Shelter and she was thrilled to bits with him - he was a really lovely chap. Would have said a cross between a lab and staffie, but who knows?

Settings: F/5.6 1/250sec ISO640 manual handheld @ 420mm

Many thanks for your C&Cs on my Blue Tit upload and a special THANK YOU to MossyOak for his UA - very much appreciated and treasured Smile

Lovely portrait Sylvia, I like the 'looking back' pose that you've captured. I agree about the lab/staffie cross, the detail is very good indeed.
