Plume Obstruction

Hu-Dad tried to capture a sweet moment between Landon and Roscoe yesterday, but a plume obstruction prevented a clear image.

Hu-Dad was sitting on a bench when Roscoe and Landon jumped up with him. They were intrigued with woodland animals, so were scanning the trail and trees. Hu-Dad thought this would make a great photograph, raised the camera, and immediately encountered tail interference.

Both looking the same way, but blocked by the tail.

No matter how much Hu-Dad tried to block the furry wagging, Landon’s tail kept rising in front of the lens. So imagine, if you will, what these photos would have looked like without the plume obstruction.

Hu-Dad surrenders.

    Don’t hate the Plume! My Cocheta had the fluffy puffy plume tail….which picked up every piece of trash in a 5 mile radius!

    There is no floof like a Sibe tail.

    Hu-Dad-even WITH those FLUFFY tails-they are cute pictures that capture the looks from Roscoe and Landon scanning the scenery! I always look forward to your photos each and every day!

Our winter may have been mild so far, but, like much of the east coast, we had a little snow this week. And so we had a little fun.
