Springer!

By pfheyes  
A complete change of subject!

I've recently got my hands on a 70-210mm zoom for use in my mountain shots, but it also comes in handy for fun shots like this.

This is a shot of Jasper, in his element. I'm not sure what he'd been eating though!

Thanks for looking,

Pete

The angle of the dog's tongue is brilliant.

If only Jasper were a yellow labrador......but you can't have everything I suppose ;o)

Nice departure from your norm Mr H, expect to see a robin shot from you shortly.

Great name, Pete. If only he were a Cocker (sorry Gwyn). Great action shot - you've captured the zest that all spaniels have.

Thanks everyone - much appreciated.

Hi Jennifer - he isn't a working dog, but he and Millie are frequently flushing pheasant and rabbits when they are out and about.

Is that his tongue?
Great doggy shot, I can imagine the folowing slobbery seconds as he hits his target!
