Dogs, Dogs, and more Dogs

I've started meeting with a group of disc dog enthusiasts on wed. evenings. It's a great crowd and the dogs all have tons of fun. Kess has been very stubborn about bringing the Frisbee back the last 5 feet or so, which is starting to wear down my patience, but after two weeks she's a little better. I know Kevin will feel my frustration as he spent many long hours in the back yard trying to get Kess to bring him the ball. She'll have to mention him in her acceptance speech for her first major flyball award. Well as you might imagine taking pictures of running dogs catching frisbees is quite difficult. In general the dog would be in focus, but they wouldn't catch the frisbee or the dog would catch the frisbee but the lovely fence behind them would be in focus. As the light began to fade things got even more difficult. Even so I think I managed to get a few nice shots of all the action. Next time I hope to take the whole scene into better account and think a little more about where I place myself to get better shots.
