First of all Mitch, when I get the chance to meet a new artist I love going though their galleries to see what their work is all about. You have one beautiful gallery here my friend.
This is the second picture I have seen that has to do with Beatles songs and you folks are coming up with some great old song titles and some amazing and beautiful pictures to fit the song. This one made me laugh when I first saw it as I had to admire the look and determination of this little one. Beautiful in air actions shot with amazing sharpness. Outstanding work Mitch. Have a great weekend.

  Superb stop action, Mitch - I love the way his compact body and drawn up legs make him look like a little cannon ball or soccer ball (with a tail LOL) hurled through the air. Very well done.

  Yup, he's flying!!

When a dog overjumps like this, it is sometimes an indication of lack of confidence ("I better fly high if I'm gonna clear that thing!"). Jump training can help and, with a more efficient jumping style, seconds can be shaved off the dog's course time. Contests are often won and lost by mere seconds!!

  Good golly, Miss Molly "I believe I can fly"! I like how tack-sharp your focus is on this little one and how it really doesn't look like he's flying. All he needs is a cape and he'd be Super Dog.
