Capturing good images of pets requires time and patience. Getting down on their level is also important. I prefer outdoors natural environments as opposed to studios and backdrops. Sure the lighting is more of a challenge but I enjoy it. This is Daisy Mae. A Heeler from New Mexico. Heelers are bred to be herd dogs and there are many of these working dogs in New Mexico. They are versatile at herding sheep, cattle or goats. They are very loyal, intelligent and alert. Daisy is no exception. Here I have captured her alertness and readiness to work.
