I love my dog, but like a lot of animals, he's a little camera-shy. In fact, every time I get the camera out, he moves in the completely opposite direction. Worse, he'll move around as fast as possible, so there's no hope of a sharply focussed image. However, just this once, he fixated on a bird behind me, as I fixated on him. In a medium length shot, you miss the detail of his white and black fur. Close up, I think you get a good idea. I love the clarity of his eye, the growing pattern of his furry brow. Those white eyelashes - what a dag!
