Being Serious

Hu-Dad aimed his camera at Qannik last night while enjoying some porch time. The request was simple – capture Qannik being serious for just a few minutes. How hard could that be?

Me being serious? Sure.

Me being serious? Sure.

While Qannik is bigger, he shares many similarities with his younger brother, Typhoon. That would extend to his desire to rarely be serious about anything. He lets his sisters Natasha and Kiska handle the heavy lifting of being a part of the seniors among the Herd. Instead, Qannik believes in just having fun.

Hey, I can't help smiling.

Hey, I can’t help smiling.

So, Hu-Dad’s request to express seriousness was met with the usual grin.

What are the odds of me being serious? Not very high.

What are the odds of seriousness from me? Not very high.

    Mom sez: Qannik certainly looks as though he understands every word, too!

    Ok that last picture is amazing, truly you should win an award
    Dare I ask how many pictures you took to get it?

      Qannik loves working the camera, so Hu-Dad took a total of about 15 pictures to get the three photos we used in this blog. Others in the Herd are somewhat less cooperative.
