[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I promised a couple of other members I'd post this one. The dog in the shot is Tucker, same dog as in My Best Friend's Eye. The cat's name is Lucky. Tucker constantly and endlessly torments the cat every chance he gets. I think the cat thinks it's payback time now. :-0 Ouch!. I was actually trying to snap a picture of Tucker but was to slow and accidentally caught the cat in action, claws ready! Enjoy. :-)

Funny capture! The diagonal of the dog (?) is good for the composition and the way his head is turned away lets us focus on the focused cat.

But from my point of view the cats paw seems to be too far away.

Ouch! He he, i know exactly how it is. You think the dog's the boss, cause it's bigger and all...then you haven't had a cat, and defenatly not a cat and a dog...

In my opinion Tucker is getting away really easy. Our cat used to jump up and bite our dog in the but...

I'd call this a nice action shot Stephen. Tucker seem to be beautifull. What type of dog is he? Love the colour of his fur.

Wonderful capture Stephen! I have the same pair at home, only they differ in colours from this one. Lucky was caught in a good action. I love the intence look and the claws ready...and that dark mood in the stare of the cat :-D

What a split second caught in the act! Good thing you were ready. It's interesting how Lucky seems to have put himself in the spotlight, instead of leaving us the monotone browns that Tucker's photo would have been. Good title, as applies to both animals. Technicals aside for this one.

Good use of the "Decisive Moment" category, Stephen, and a great capture at just the right fraction of a second. It really looks like Tucker is about to experience something he'd much rather do without. I like the mostly brownish color setting, and the way in which it is broken by Lucky. Very nice.

Stephen, What a fun photo! I have added it to my theme folder entitled "aNyThInG eXtReMeLy fUnNy." Thanks for sharing and God's best to you, Tim

Glad you posted the promised shot, Stephen... That cat of yours seems particularly mean, by the way ;-)

All the fun is for us to see that pic but I'm not sure that Tucker enjoyed it as much... I would love to see Tucker's "innocent eyes" at the same moment when the cat hits him... What am I, sadistic ?

excellent timing for that one, maybe not for the portrait of tuker though;-)) nice colors and this dog looks really great! is it a weimar braque?

The category "food" overdoes it a bit, I think. But definitely a "Decisive moment". Once I had a cat and a dog too, and they were best friends. The cat teased the dog like this too, but always from a higher spot with plenty of things to hide behind ;o)

This is too funny! I love to see "decisive moments" like this one. I think you lucked out with this capture. Just wondering, is the cat okay? I can't imagine what the next couple of photos would have looked like after this one. Thank you for sharing.

:D my expression...:D When i'm seeing this!!!


Poor dog !

I really like the expression on the cat face, ready to attack. If he can talk, he would say something like "argh i'm gonna hit you big dog for all you've done to me".

Great catch !
