The unintentional shot

I wanted a shot of peaceful geese on a pond, but our Kona girl (below) tried to give chase and off they flew.

{I deserve a belly rub for interrupting your picture}

Kona sweetie, you are much too adorable for your own good. Who's a good doggie? You are!

Kona preparo una magnifica toma, quizá mejor que si
Hubieran estado en reposo.

All geese seem to be so easily spooked, often by each other, so I'm not surprised they've taken to the air. It makes an exciting picture.

Wow, a wonderful shot. I can hear the wings...
Best regards, Synnöve

I'm on Kona's side. It's a much better photo with geese in flight.

I think Kona helped create a very dramatic image and thoroughly deserves a belly rub!

Kona is adorable adorable...and the first shot is beautiful!

She must have decided that the birds flying would make a great shot. That Kona is a smart dog.

Kona does look mightily pleased with herself.. she did do a fine job of chasing off those pesky old geese :)

When they fly off like that, I'm usually so startled that I have trouble refocusing on them in the air and miss the shot!
Kona is adorable.

A great photographers assistant.

What serendipity, Jude, and it's a beautiful shot.
Little Kona is adorable!!!

The first shot is so beautiful!
Your Kona is so lovely, so cute!!

Jack said...

Terrific. You probably discovered that the mass bird flight was more interesting to photograph than sitting birds would have been.

Linda said...

It's a great shot! I'd say Kona makes a good partner.

Carola Bartz said...

And you got a fantastic shot!!!

I don't know what the peaceful geese looked like, but that is a wonderful photo, with a fine sense of movement and life. Every time I see a group of birds I try to photograph them, and always wish I would end up with a shot like that. But I never have so far. I'm envious of that picture.
