Today, the designated "do something with the dogs" event involved taking them to the park to 'hunt'. The dog park is loaded with wildlife to chase, especially at 6am. I also happen to think it's very pretty in the morning.
These pictures brought to you by my new Nikon CoolPix L110. Let's just say there was an incident involving my Olympus SP-500UZ... and I don't want to talk about it.
While I was busy playing with my new toy, Bailey and Lilly were busy chasing down every small furry creature they could find.
(This picture was taken trying out the continuous shoot action mode where it takes many pictures in a row to catch fast moving action. Clearly, it's better used in good lighting.
So many rodents... so little time!
I waited patiently, and sure enough, one of my lovely friends came to visit me.
This is my favorite thing about the dog park in Brown County - it's wooded, and natural, and chock full of wonderful wildlife.
I've never seen a woodpecker land on the ground before. I mean, I never doubted they did - I just never saw it before. He was so close to me that I had to take a second to zoom out in order to take a pic of him. By the time I managed to push the shudder button - he was on his way back up to the trees.
I see you rodent!
Hey! Get back down here, rodent! We're too tired for all this fooling around!
You didn't honestly think I was going to leave the signature photo out, did you?
9am household silence and crashed out dogs brought to you by the resident wildlife of the Brown County Dog Park. It's a beautiful thing.
