#SundayPhoto – Hang on

This photo makes me smile, but not for the reason I intended. I’ve been trying to take a good photo of the soon-to-be birthday hound. She’s going to be 11, which is a good age.

I was pleased with this photo. She looked happy. Out on a walk, in the woods, with most of her pack. It wasn’t until I got home and looked a bit closer that I discovered I’d captured something even more exciting. It appears that at that exact moment, a wood sprite was riding on her back. Hand cupped, the sprite was shouting commands to the valiant and loyal steed.  I quite understand. It is a distance when you are so small.

I can see these two having many adventures together.

      She loves a break from routine, especially with lots of her pack around her.

      Thank you! She has grown used to me pointing a camera at her.

    This is a brilliant photo, Cheryl! You couldn’t recreate it so well even if you wanted to. I am forever trying to take decent photos of our dogs, but it’s not easy. I hope your hound has a very happy eleventh birthday a break from the sprite shouting in her ear!

      Thanks Debbie. I took a series of photos of the hound. The wood sprite only appears in a couple, fortunately. I think it’s all to do with timing when taking photos of dogs.

    Ah, now I spotted the wooed sprite straight away but didn’t think of her as a wood sprite until I saw your caption. Amazing to see the active wear trend has caught on among the fairies. #MySundayphoto

      We’ve moved on from medieval wear. Why shouldn’t they?

    Great photo and I spotted your ‘wood sprite’ straight away. It looks suspiciously like the sprite might be taking a selfie!

      Owh. I hadn’t thought of that. Or making an action movie from the vantage spot of a dog’s back.

      She is rather special, but I am totally biased.

      The children thought the photo reminded them of Clifford the big red dog, except not red.

    Aww fantastic photo. He looks fantastic!
    You were very lucky to capture the ‘sprite’ too…I hear they are very illusive.
    We just said goodbye to our little pooch three weeks ago. Thankfully we have thousands of photo’s to remember our adventures and happy times. Keep clicking away! Thanks for sharing and I wish you a great week ahead too.
