This shot of my friend's English Springer Spaniel was taken out in the bush while he was watching the birds during a weekend camping. I burnt out the background so the focus was fully on the dog.

  Natalie, this is my favorite picture of the month. I just want to hug this dog. Your dof is amazing, and he's better looking than most humans I know. Great, wonderful capture.
