3/52 - A Stylish Puppy

At 15 weeks old Bea is already showing the 'stylish' border collie crouch for which her breed is known.

3/52 - A Stylish Puppy
Camera:   Canon EOS 7D
Canon Exposure Mode:  Manual
Lens: Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS
Focal Length; 400mm
Shutter: 0.001 sec (1/1000)
Aperture: f/5.6
ISO: 500

I had a rough time this week picking my selection.  For this shot, the sun was setting, low in the sky, lit up Bea's eyes perfectly & cast a lovely golden hue. Because the weather was gorgeous for a few days we were able to do more shooting outside. I was blessed with so many great shots it was hard to choose! I went with the one above because it shows what Bea is going to grow into...a working sheep dog.

Her ears are mostly in the fully upright position.  The ear on the left is still flopping around a bit, but will fully upright here soon. 

She is starting to look less like a puppy and more like the dog she will grow into. 

Her personality is beginning to emerge too. 

She is a serious little girl.  While she enjoys playing, especially with Brynn, she is rather no nonsense about it.  When she is tired, she is done and will find her spot to lie down and snooze, usually right at my feet. 

She goes 100 mph, then drops. 

Whatever she is doing, she is fully dedicated to the task at hand. Not much gets by her. 

Sphinx Puppy

An absolute joy.
