My Graceful Dog

Koira is normally pretty graceful. She is sleek and elegant and powerful.

Nailed it.


And then you pull out a frisbee. Koira tries really, really hard to get the disc. Sometimes, like the above photo, she does it with style. Sometimes, she flubs.

Not quite understanding the physics involved in disc catching

Whoops.

Spit flying, disc wobbling, muscle rippling catch


I think it just goes to show that no matter how graceful and beautiful the subject, a photographer can get an unflattering photo. Then again, it can sometimes be the outtakes that are the funniest looking back on them. And I do have to take some of the blame for those flubs- while Koira has some catching issues, I was also throwing the frisbee left handed while kneeling with my camera, taking photos with my right hand. So my throws were perhaps not quite predictable.

This may not be super graceful, but I love the power and intensity.


Still, my little girl kind of rocks.
