Close up of a dog in São Vicente who was anxious to defend his turf! I shot this in between the barks :)

    Beautiful dog portrait, Ursula!! Such clear eyes, with a great catch light! :-)

  • Thank you so much my friend! I used to fear dogs’ barking, so I’m especially proud of this one…no fear of the barking, and I was able to maintain steady hands to shoot this!
