Had to teach daughter Liz how to throw the frisbee - that only went 'so so' - she'll talk to me again I expect.... :rolleyes:

But, I did get a few good photos - so of course I have to share a few of 'em here:


Here is his pretty intense gaze at the frisbee, right before jumping:

Here is a typical 'stretch jump' - amazing that he times this so well, I mean he is at a full run:

That was one shot (well all I took were) from motor driven sequences - here are the moments surrounding that stretch (you can see how quickly he is moving by the background):

And even when Liz threw a low one, he does the stretch:

ha- me, too! They are always excellent and entertaining. And call me crazy ( ) but there is something utterly adorable about those two little white feet stretching out behind him as he leaps in that last picture.

Thanks all.. I always worry that, since I have only one BC, I might wear out my 'photo welcome' here.

Kevin - those were taken with a Canon 1DmkII - using a 50mm lens.

I just measured from take-off spot to landing spot in the sequence from above - very close to 27 feet (!!) from where he left the ground, to where he touched down. (There are more photos on either side of the sequence shared)

BCs are amazing springs!
