I would love to see reaction images of the aftermath chaos that must have ensued. As they say, "if there are no pictures, it didn't happen". :D

So, with all those dogs around, did the mouse survive his heart attack?


the mouse was fine, the cowering horde on the other hand all tried to get behind each other!

Hi Miss Julian. Thanks for your visit and kind words. I look forward to the day that I can do a better job. Those dogs are my pals and the girl is my daughter. Two of the dogs have since passed and I miss them sorely, two still live with us and the other two visit when we dog-sit them. The wolf spider was amazing, my son caught it in the basement - we slid paper under him and put a glass on top. I had a macro stack ready to go and just lifted the cup out of the way and remarkably it stayed still for 10 or 12 frames.

That group as a whole listens less than one well trained hummingbird!
respect,
Piet

This is cool stuff. I gotta learn PS; seems to free the mind and imagination. Call of the wild; don't mess with that lady in the shade. Matt

thanks Matt - about PS.. Absolutely worth learning/exploring. Every time you learn something, it makes you a touch more comfortable with it, but I warn you, it is an endless process. You will always see something that someone has done and you will want to know how to do it. That can drive a fellow insane!!

And equally difficult, or perhaps even more difficult is the artistic knowledge of how an image works. How color and tone works, how light works. Composition. If knowing PS is the How, then this other stuff is the What. I suspect that artists have a natural advantage over photographers - even in Photography!!

Anyway, just sharing that the journey truly is endless - and worthwhile (even if the journey is but staggering about in the dark like myself)

Thanks for the encouragement. At this moment, PS looks like El Capitan to me, a haunting, taunting challenge. But worth the climb. Best. Matt

Fair Warning: I don't think wanting to do a better job ever goes away.

Losing a dog is never easy. Glad you still have the others. I am a part time "aunt" to a few little dogs.

Macro is what got me interested in photography. :)

And *nothing* is better than a well trained hummingbird. :love:
