As most people that have encountered a Border Collie know, these are working dogs, and they are very focused on the task at hand when they’re in “working mode”.  While Cliareach Filleadh held the ever-important Frisbee to focus her attention, I attempted to to get a decent shot of her working pose, straight body line with ears perked and one paw poised.  There are, of course, always some small movements that live subjects make like blinking and fidgeting, and active breeds like the Border Collie are especially guilty, even in a working pose.  And so resulted the top photo of her sneaky little licker, perfectly capturing “oops” for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Oops! by the Daily Post.
