A week ago I introduced Ruby our German Shepard puppy. Yesterday afternoon I took some photo’s of her while playing outside with Tammy and Tekkies her older sisters. She is growing up so fast and I must say she is very good. She let’s me know when she wants to go out. The only problem is when I am busy with something and can’t drop it immediately I get a “present” in the house. But otherwise my floors stay clean and dry if I take her outside approximately every hour.
When I am at my desk in my office she lies on the little carpet. She’s my little shadow for now when she’s older she’ll be my big shadow…
I took these photo’s with my Canon 7D and my Canon EF 18-200mm IS lens. I am still struggling to get my action photo’s right. Most of them blur and I need to get it right before I go to the Kruger National Park in December. Birds in flight is going to be a problem if I do not get my settings right. I never had this problem with my Canon 500D. So if someone is also using an 7D could you please help me in the right direction. I shot these photo’s in Aperture Priority (AV) ISO 800, F 5.6. Manual select :Single point AF, Center- weighted average.
I am busy working through my different holiday photo’s and came across these few photo’s of a Kwikstertjie and a moth or butterfly, not quite sure what it is, but I think it’s a moth. Anyway my parents, the boys, their nephew and I went to Sandbaai for the September/October 2012 school holiday. My Father got the flu and my mom was also not feeling well so most of the times the 3 boys and I went for outings.
The boys and I went to Hermanus on the 30th of September 2012 to go and see if we could spot some whale’s. The Whale festival is always a huge thing in Hermanus and thousands of people come to this little coastal village to spot whales and our photographers of course can’t wait to capture that WOW shot of a breaching whale. This particular morning something totally different from a whale caught my eye. I spotted this Kwikstertjie with a Moth. First the Kwikstertjie just hopped around it’s pray and then it took it in it’s beak and moved around on the rock with it. I waited to capture it while eating it but did not have that luck.I took quite allot of photo’s of this but only going to share a few. After nearly half an hour of capturing the little Kwikstertjie and the Moth a young boy came running towards it and scared it and it flew away and I was not very happy. Why can’t the children’s parent’s teach their children not to scare animals and birds…
I am happy to introduce Ruby our newest family member. She is a 8 week old German Shepard. Today when I took her outside to visit mother nature I took a few photo’s of her. I must be honest she is learning fast. When I call her and my other two dogs to go outside she listens and come with. A few times now she asked me with little moans to go outside. Each time she just made it to the patch of grass….
When the people came to drop her off I had no clue we are getting a new puppy. I was mad because we already have 3 dogs, a cat and a parrot. I asked my husband why didn’t he warn me? His answer was because I knew you would say no…. But it only took a few minutes for my heart to melt…. I am a real sucker for puppies and Ruby stirred up some memories of my first German Shepard Simba. Oh how I loved him it was a very dark day when we had to put him down due to age…
Here are a few photo’s of Ruby. Will share some more as she grows up….

“Approach each new problem not with a view of finding what you hope will be there, but to get the truth, the realities that must be grappled with. You may not like what you find. In that case you are entitled to try to change it. But do not deceive yourself as to what you do find to be the facts of the situation.”
