Photos: Amazing Shots of Dogs Catching Treats

Thinking of new ways to capture the personalities of dogs is a tough job, so it’s great when a photographer lands on a truly new idea. German lensman Christian Vieler realized that the process of catching a treat out of the air has many separate moments—recognition, focus, attack, satisfaction—that can seem comic, intense, or cute:

“Every shoot I am looking for that specific moment when the dog is looking as cute or funny as they can be,” said Vieler. “That cannot be seen without the power of freezing motion – dog’s faces with magnificent lineaments, telling us stories of panic, desire and joy.”

I think you’ll enjoy this unique take on an old theme. Don’t forget to click on over to Vieler’s site for lots more images, in addition to the catching shots.
