THIS IS ANOTHER PHOTO OF FOUR SOCKS SNIFFING AT A DRAGONFLY ON MY BEDROOM WINDOW SCREEN. THIS SHOT IN BLACK & WHITE IS A PERMANENT BACKGROUND FOR MY COMPUTER SCREEN, AS IT WILL ALWAYS HOLD A VERY DEAR SPOT IN MY HEART. I TOOK FOUR PHOTOS OF THIS OCCURANCE AND THEY ARE ALL DIFFERENT. FOUR SOCKS STARTED SNIFFING AND EVENTUALLY LICKING THE DRAGONFLY’S FEET, CAUSING IT TO MOVE DOWN AND TO THE RIGHT. SO, THE NOSE AND TONGUE TRACKS PROGRESS DOWN ON THE SCREEN AS WELL IN THE OTHER THREE PHOTOS. I LOST MY FOUR SOCKS ON JUNE 12, 2007, I MISS HIM SO MUCH. FOUR SOCKS WAS A 94% TIMBER WOLF, 4% GERMAN SHEPHERD AND 2% MALAMUTE. HE FATHERED 3 PUPS, 2 MALE AND 1 FEMALE. HE LIVED TO BE 12 YEARS AND 1 DAY SHORT OF 6 MONTHS EXACTLY. I GOT HIM AT THE AGE OF 13 WEEKS, FROM A COUPLE THAT DIDN’T KNOW HOW TO DEAL WITH WOLF HYBRIDS AND HE HAD SOME SEPERATION ANXIOTY ISSUES AND HE WOULD TEAR UP THINGS IN MY BEDROOM WHENEVER I WOULD LEAVE HIM ALONE WITH HIS MATE, DEOGEE. AT THE AGE OF 8 MONTHS, HE FINALLY STOPPED AND NEVER TORE UP ANOTHER ITEM FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE. I TOOK THIS SHOT WITH MY CANON EOS KISS REBEL 300D AND MY QUANTARAY 100-300MM MACRO TELEPHOTO POS LENS. POS, STANDS FOR, PIECE OF SH!T. I EVENTUALLY REPLACED THAT LENS WITH A CANON MODEL OF THE SAME SIZE RANGE. MY BEDROOM SCREEN THAT THIS SHOT WAS TAKEN THROUGH, IS ON MY HOUSE IN VACAVILLE, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES.

    what a precious moment to be able to remember with a photograph :) all of your wolves were gorgeous creatures, and im sure they were very lucky to have had you as their keeper. beautiful souls…

  • THANK YOU LYS. I HAVE TO AGREE WITH YOU, THEY WERE ALL FANTASTIC FAMILY MEMBERS. THEY SLEPPED ON MY BED, WERE ALWAYS KEPT INDOORS, LOVED LONG WALKS, LOVED BEING BRUSHED, ESPECIALLY SOCKS. THE FIRST THING HE LET ME DO TO TELL ME THAT HE TRUSTED ME WAS LET ME BRUSH HIM. I GOT HIM AT 13 WEEKS FROM A COUPLE THAT COULDN’T TAKE CARE OF HIM LIKE HE NEEDES. IT TOOK ME 8 MONTHS TO BREAK HIS BAD HABBIT OF CHEWING THINGS UP WHEN I LEFT HIM IN THE HOUSE WITH DEOGEE, SHE WAS 2 1/2 YEARS OLD WHEN I GOT SOCKS. THEN ONE DAY, HE JUST QUIT CHEWING AND BECAME THE MOST DOSSEL PET I’VE EVER HAD. I MISS THEM ALL SO BAD.

    Quite clever

  • THANKS DAMIEN, ACTUALLY, SOCKS WAS THE CLEVER ONE, I JUST WENT OUTSIDE TO TAKE A PHOTO OF THE DRAGON FLY ON MY WINDOW SCREEN. SOCKS IS THE ONE THAT ACTUALLY MADE THE PHOTO, WITHOUT HIM, IT WOULD JUST BE A DRAGON FLY ON A SCREEN. THANKS AGAIN, BOB.

    Beautiful picture and incredibly beautiful dogs. I am very sorry for his passing. I would not know what to do without my Bandit. She is my best friend and I can’t wait to get another one for her to have a brother or sister.

  • THANK YOU ELIZABETH, I WAS LOST FOR A WHILE ALSO, BUT I NOW HAVE SASHA AND CHEWBACCA. SASHA IS A LAB/SHEPHERD MIX AND CHEWBACCA IS A SIBERIAN HUSKY/TIMBER WOLF MIX. I HAVE ALWAYS LIKED WOLF HYBRIDS IN THE 75% TO 95% CONTENT WOLF. CHEWBACCA IS ONLY 25% TIMBER WOLF, BUT HE IS DOING JUST FINE, NOW THAT SASHA HAS ACCEPTED HIM AS A MEMBER OF THE FAMILY. THEY DO BETTER WITH A PLAY MATE. BOB

    LOL I love this : ]

  • THANK YOU KRISTINE. I DO ALSO, I THINK IT IS THE COOLEST PHOTO I’VE EVER TAKEN AND I’VE BEEN SHOOTING SINCE 1974. I DON’T KNOW IF I WILL EVER GET USED TO NOT HAVING SOCKS AROUND. OF COURSE HE WILL ALWAYS BE IN MY HEART AND IN MY MEMORIES, AS WELL, HE IS MY PERMANENT DESKTOP ON MY COMPUTER MONITOR. BOB :)

    Oh my .. this so adorable and .. I really don’t know what to say.

  • THANKS ROUBLE, THAT COMES AS A GREAT COMPLIMENT. IF MY IMAGE CAN EFFECT SOMEONE THAT WAY, THEN I ACCOMPLISHED MY GOAL. EMOTIONAL STIRRING IS WHAT I TRY TO GET IN MY SHOTS. THEY DON’T ALL WORK, BUT THIS ONE DOES. BOB ;)

    Smokey, how amazing is the picture of your little guy..I love it..this is really cool..Sherri

  • THANK YOU SHERRI AND I APPRECIATE ALL OF MY IMAGES THAT YOU HAVE FAVED. I STILL THINK THAT THIS IS THE COOLEST SHOT I’VE EVER TAKEN. I SURE DO MISS MY SOCKS THOUGH. BUT, WITH SHOTS LIKE THIS ONE AND THOUSANDS OF OTHER SHOTS THAT I’VE TAKEN OF MY KIDS, HE WILL FOREVER BE IN MY HEART AND MEMORIES, AS WELL AS MY SOUL. HOPEFULLY, THERE IS A RAINBOW BRIDGE AND WHEN I DIE, I WILL HAVE 7 WOLF HYBRIDS WAITING FOR THEIR ALPHA MALE TO JOIN THE PACK. BOB ;)

    wow, great capture, wonderful in b&w, great moment caught on camera!

  • Thank you Sandra for the fine compliment. It was one of those had to be in the right place at the right time, shots. I started out to take just a shot of the dragonfly, but Socks decided he wanted to be in the photo also. The color rendition of this shot was published in the National Examiner on October 8, 2007, just 4 months after he passed. I only managed to buy two copies of the paper, but I will keep those two papers until the day I die. Bob ;)

  • Thank you for this great honor. Sorry it’s taken me so long to get back to you. My mom broke her right upper femor and had to have a huge steel rod and screw put in it to get it back together and I’ve been dealing with her in the convellescent rehabilitation center. So, I haven’t been on the computer very much. Sorry again and thanks again. Bob :)

  • Thanks Annie, I know you’re right. I’m sorry for taking so long to get back to you,,,,I’ve been involved with my Mom’s broken femor recovery. Right now she is in a convellescent rehabilitation center, but she will be coming home on Aug 12, 2011. Then I have to take over her banking, shoping, driving her to her doctors visits, she has alzheimer’s as well as her recovery for her hip. I’ll just have to wait and see what happens. Bob :) oxo
