Hot Pursuit

By conrad  
Our golden retriever, Ashley, desperately wants to be friends with all living creatures. And even if they dont want to, shell do anything to get close to them, convinced that this will help her make friends with them. Weve seen her use many interesting techniques for that. The only technique, however, that does not work, is running after them. But she still has to find that out. Here shes running after a pigeon, after having taken a swim in the river. I love the way you can see her shedding water drops and kicking up sand...

Great shot. What a pity that the shot next to it in the gallery isn't a cat!

Nicely captured with a nice sense of movement

Feel it would benefit from a little more space in front (and so below to keep proportions)

Just brilliant, the dog AND the pictureSmile Our Irish terrier has no idea how to make friends, he jumps onto any other dog he sees, they think that's attacking them, it's not but he fails to achieve what he's after(g)
