    How wonderful for you and for them! I'm an obvious dog lover and would love to see more of your two. Keira (if she's the smiling one here) is quite a beauty. Great detail on her face. I feel as though I can reach right out and pat her.:love:

    Thanks BB. She is a minx.
    Here are a couple of Astro in his more athletic moments without female distraction.
    Cheers,

    WOW! First of all - these are super shots, second of all they're super action shots!

    Inquiring minds who wish to emulate your action shots need to know more - when you have the time. I'd love to know how you got these two. I have not really put my mind into figuring out how to capture this kind of photo but would love to know how to and to try to do it.

    Fantastic pictures!! I'm an avid duck hunter and those shots make me long for the winter.

    Nice to see Astro here with friend. When will we see some gannets?

    Thanks for your comments.
    Bill, I went a week ago but had ISO set on 100 from ingrained habit. Most of the images had blown highlights. Experimenting after showed me I should have stuck to Olympus default of 200. I did not think the shots worth showing.
    Otherwise the E-PL1 performed reasonably well for action images.
    Thanks for asking.:smile:
