Border collies know how to hide themselves in short grass, waiting for the unsuspecting potential Frisbee thrower to pass by. They disguise themselves in dandelion heads and you can barely see them. Well, you can almost barely see them.
In honour of +Heidi Anne Morris‘s great event #dogweekend and for the just past #nationaldogday
+Shahbaz Khan thanks!
+Christina Lihani thanks so much! I got an old Russian Helios 44 lens with adapter this week and as Joni is so focused herself she was my first subject in trying it out. I have one of two of those images, with the lovely swirly bokeh they give, just need to galvanise myself to post.
What a perfect capture of Joni (and this breed of dog). The whole story is told in that one very focused eye!

That is very interresting that dogs might understand the words we say, but in factI experience it already with Mira. +Ellie Kennard I am well so far, very busy, thank you for asking!
Great shot Ellie.
I’m glad you liked it, Simon.
+Nataly Rubeo thanks so much my friend! You have a great week yourself.
Your reply made me smile too, thank you +Ursula Klepper – I know you understand dogs well… (By the way, new studies have shown that dogs understand the words we say, it's not just the tone of voice. Which of course we knew anyway!!) Hope you are well, my friend.
This made me smile and especially also your words!! 🙂
What a marvellous capture of your dog, dear Ellie!!:-)
Absolutely awesome one!!:-)))
Wish you a great day, my friend!:-)

She is 2 years and 9 months old +Azard Mohammed – yes, they don't change their looks much after they are about 2 years old, just fill out a bit more.
Thanks for that lovely comment +Shamik Tobin! She is pretty photogenic, but aren't they all?
They are such smart active furkids you can't help but, love them. Excellent shot my friend. =0)

Love everything about this shot!
oh hi Joni,good to see you again,looks great,how old are you now,looks the same as i've seen before.
What a face – and a beauty.
Dogs make our wonderful world so much better.
Thanks Cathy. Don’t they just? It’s their loving, happy, giving spirit. They just ask us to care for them and be kind and we get all of that back in return.
Ah, Joni. Never tire of seeing the way to capture her looks and moods.
Thanks so much Sandra!There are so many looks and moods, too.
What a wonderful capture!

Well she wanted to make sure you were going to throw the Frisbee. So she didn’t want to hide so as not to be completely seen
