Default Dog Agility

Whilst on a short weekend trip away, met a friend of Kirst, who had her dog in a national agility show competition for dogs.. Unfortunately we missed her event by a couple of minutes, but managed to photograph a few of the other dogs.

Used the Sigma 120-300 for these:

Great shots - and that lens is amazingly sharp! Do you use a monopod with it all the time?

Great shots! I especially like number 2 because of the subject. I have 2 boxers of my own and they're the best dogs that you could ever ask for!

Awesome shots !! Number three is my favorite. That Sigma looks like a really nice lens. How do you like it now that you have been using it for a while ?

Excellent shots. I love the look on the dogs faces as they go through the course.
