Toby on a dock at Wilder Lake by our house. He loves to go here and chase the birds and look for fish breeching.
Taken at about 8:00 in the midst of swarming mosquitoes :(

Really good work with the exposure, Michelle. It is not easy getting detail to show in the black part of your dogs face. I like the overemphasized comp too - it's as if he's protecting something... There's a story to be told here. #3182718

Thanks Darryl for your wonderful comments!! Toby has really perfected his border collie stare :) He was watching for my husband to throw a stick into the water so that he could swim out and fetch it :) #3186786
