Oh yes, it's Dewi's day. :)
And Dewi loves to fetch (and repeat, and repeat, and repeat...) just as much as Jon Farleigh loves to try and tug the toy Dewi is currently fetching. :)
So here you have it: Dewi's fetching bliss.
"Ahem. Why is your hand not moving?"
"Teasing is rude."
And if you have two minutes to kill, here's a video of the boys in action, including a tandem retrieve toward the end. (BUT! Seems that I shot the video -- with my nifty new 1080 HD- and stereo-capable camera -- in portrait mode. Oops! And clearly - or I wouldn't be telling you this - I don't know how to rotate it. Soooo, if you watch the video, please be prepared to cock your head - or rotate your viewing device - 90 degrees. Yes, I'm aware posting sideways videos is tacky. Please accept it and move on.)
But wait! There's more!
I took Dewi outside today to try and get some fetch "action" shots with the Nikon (I promise not to mention the camera again - in about six months - or whenever). :)
Before you judge the camera, however, please know that since my other camera had the slowest shutter speed on earth, I rarely ever tried to take action shots with it; therefore, I suck at taking action shots. I expect I'll get better with practice. :)
All photos, but the last one, were taken in bright sun using the Sport scene mode. I also experimented with continuous shooting (holding down the shutter release button - usually forgetting to focus on Dewi first).
"Just give me a minute to catch my breath, kay?"
