Well done MM!!! I tried to line up Cricket Koru and Hanukkah last night for a photo. Not a chance! Here's me thinking Kim was waiting for me to line them all up and she was snapping away and chuckling under her breath at my efforts.

Did you line them up or were they just sitting there and you happened to have the camera nearby?

H.P's little tots were all hanging over the tailgate of the ute yesterday. It would have made a good shot but they probably would have leapt out before the camera was aimed.

The decisive moment leaves no room to go and get the camera.

Good job MM. It's so hard to get a clear photo, the more animals in the photo, the more likely you are to get one of them moving just as the shutter clicks.

I've got quite a few blurred shots of nostrils, ears, the odd close up of an eye and various blurred images of bodies leaving the frame.

Actually Yakut that was about the 3rd time I'd called them up onto that little platform, we were clearing something underneath and they were nosing down at us, so I went in and got the camera, of course they came too, so I made them get back up and sit, their heads were all over the place then I gave a whistle, the one I use to get them to come, that shot was the 2nd one taken, they were very good dawgs! Normally in those situations, Max starts going boing boing, Clyde rushes off on a mission to find a stick and Bonnie barks her head off!

Tell your vet friend he's a lovely wee fella, he has the loveliest nature. We love him to bits, we never thought we could take to a small dog like we have to him.

Has he caught any rabbits MM? and I love the pose of all three, the innocence and enthusiasm well caught.

No he hasn't beedee, we don't seem to have any, but he is quicker than the cats at catching mice!! I took a stroll up our lane the other week and he goes everywhere with me, and as we turned the slow bend I saw a hare coming straight at us, I saw him, he saw me and turned and bolted, unfortunately Max had his nose in the long grass and missed him! Given half a chance I reckon he would catch some, want me to bring him round?? ;D

I don't suppose Max has caught any possums either then, apart from the ones sitting still on the end of your feet[;)] :D
