Sunday Funday with Beagles

I finally got to take the camera I got my wife for Christmas out running dogs with me. I figured the fresh snow and periodic sunlight would be cool if I could get some shots. I still have some learning to do with it, but it was just as much fun chasing them with the camera.

Here is the only rabbit I was able to get a picture of b/c it is the only one that wasn't hauling the mail.




My brother in law's 1 year old pup Boomer.


Here is my two males just after they got out of the truck


Stopping the search due to a bark from his brother


The first pass throwing a "snow roost" around the turn


I think this next picture is awesome, I caught two dogs in frame, front dogs back feet about to land and the 2nd dog in full stretch. You also may notice no tongue needed for that full cry.



Mack soloing his split


Smoke on a split


The next 3 pictures are pretty cool as the dog was running right at me (I missed the rabbit coming down the trail, so he got to live another day).


He goes screaming right past the 90 degree turn the rabbit made, and it's like his nose goes left, and he locks up the brakes.


Then he makes the 180 and it's back to green flag racing.


Cresting the hill coming right at me. I grabbed them here, it was cold and wind whipping me in the face, and I was froze!




Anyway, I had a lot of fun chasing them around with the camera. I've gotta work on getting the rabbits in frame when they are running full speed. It's way harder with a camera than with a gun!! I also learned a little about the lighting. You can see some of the shots the sky was very over cast, nothing very bright, basically just how it looked as if you were standing there. Then some of them the sun poked out and reflected off the brush, the snow, and the dogs, and it really made everything stand out. You can't pick the lighting I guess. I'm looking forward to taking this to some field trials this spring and getting some shots!

Re: Sunday Funday with Beagles

Great pics. Thanks for sharing them.

I had a couple of questions though. First, was the tip of Mack's tail bleeding or is that just some sort of lighting artifact? Second, is that a school in the background? And if so, do they mind you hunting nearby? It's pretty cool if they don't.

And lastly, how did your brother-in-law teach a 1-year old beagle to point? That's extremely impressive!
