Hark – Who Goes There?

Hu-dad here.  Sometimes you get the picture that you were meant to get, not the one you wanted.  Such was the case Sunday evening.  We were out far from other people and I was going to take a few pictures of The Herd.  Suddenly, they all focused on something behind me.  Really, really focused.

Is there something behind me?

But no matter how much I looked, I could not figure out what had their attention. But they sure kept staring. Even as I moved around the Jeep so my back was no longer to whatever was out there. The Herd just kept staring.

Even as I moved around the Jeep, they kept focused.

No, I do not know what they saw, smelled, or heard. Turkey? Deer? Bear? Bobcat? I will never know; I only know they were very, very interested.

    Or maybe they were just messin’ with your head! But no matter, those are great “write your own caption” photos!

    Perfect shots! Isn’t it wonderful when that happens? And you know it as you watch through the lens…it’s totally magic when those moments occur and yours certainly was one! Just awesome!

    That is an awesome photo! Sibes hanging out every window with lazer-sharp focus on something that’s a mystery to you!

    I think it was someone carrying some ham.

    I wouldn’t care what it was so much as that whatever it was provided such a fantastic photo op! You could have shot some sort of fantastic viral video with them all looking so attentive like that. That was awesome!

    Hmmm..wonder what it was?

    We bet if you let them loose, you would find out very quickly:)

    Great pic. Maybe they were channeling the spirits of Sibes past.

    They might have seen or heard or smelled something in another dimension.

    Probably they were just messing with your mind.

    I don’t think it matters what was out there, because those are some awesome pictures! JEEP should have them as their spokesmodels, because I know it would convince me to buy one. I love their expressions!

    Love the picture of them all hanging out in the jeep! Probably the best ant-theft system you can get installed 🙂

    What a neat picture this is! A jeep full of Siberians, definitely on “Siber-Alert”! Even if nothing else presented itself, the picture alone is priceless!

  17. Maxx on July 28, 2011 at 4:03 am

    What a picture! A jeep full of Sibes!!

    Cheers,

    What an impressive sight! The Herd, that is, but I too wonder what caught their full attention. Hmmm….

  19. Stella on July 28, 2011 at 1:10 am

    Kiska knows exactly where it is and how to get it if it wasn’t for these darn straps!

    Such a beauty this girl is!

    Kisses,
