Happy Animal Crackers Saturday! Got some cute shots this week... spent a lot of time playing with different settings and different lenses on my camera yesterday.
First up is Black Jack. One of our "Studs".... he has been in a smaller pen alone the past couple of months. He beat up on Sergio pretty bad, he has never hurt one of the babies, ever... but I guess because Sergio was an orphan and did not have a Mom to remind Black Jack when to stop "playing" with the babies... well I am just glad we found them when we did, or Sergio may not have just got a couple of bruises. So we moved Black Jack to a pen on his own. This week we let him back into the larger pen. I wanted to wait until I knew Alonso could out run Black Jack... but if we want babies next year - he has to have some time with all of the girls :0) And he has been keeping his distance from the the three babies in that pen... their Moms have made sure of that!
Bucket for two? Love this shot... These to guys are great buddies - two of our Standards - Took this with an older lens I haven't used in forever - my Zoom AF 28-105 - Really a sharp shot.
hmmmm... what can I say? The leaves must have been worth the reach? And imagine... her milk bag is 1/2 the size it started. Used the same Zoom lens, I normally only have my one larger zoom lens on so I can get farther away photos.. but I really like how crisp the smaller lens gets.
I ADORE this photo of Lucy!!! I was messing around with my Micro Lens and different settings.... she is such a beautiful girl - I have never used my Micro lens to get animal shots... I really like it!
And Libbie... she knows she is gorgeous, she knows she is "Top Dog", she knows she runs the show over everything in life..... LOL I like this photos cuz you really can't tell how big she is. She could be a Full size giant Australian Shepherd - but no she is only 10 inches tall.. (shhh just don't tell her that ok? )
Hope you liked Animal Crackers this Saturday. Beautiful weather here the past few days, hope it is the same where you are!!
