Being a photographer of nature can be annoying.
There's always The Shot, the one you really want to capture. It's a rare opportunity, a really truly difficult thing to get just right. When the moment presents itself you'd better have your camera ready, because you're only going to get one chance at it. And there'll be a clothesline pole in the way most of the time.
There's only two shots of Borzoi that are really breathtaking--one is of them launching off, their back legs digging hard into the ground, their front ends well up, front legs reaching far out. That's the one up there, with the pole in the way.
The second is the obverse of the first photo. Borzoi have what's called a "double suspension" gallop, which is to say when they are running full tilt, at one point in the gallop all four feet are off the ground: the front two are facing backwards, the back two are reaching forward well past the front feet. That's the other cool shot. And if you do a search for Borzoi it's inevitable that you'll find them both.
This isn't quite it.
Neither is this.
You'll also find out when photographing the Borzoi hound that there's one really easy shot to get--that of them lounging:
Nothing can lounge quite like a Borzoi who is tired from crazily galloping around the back yard while carrying a stuffed chicken.
And then there's Penny, who is very photogenic and who for the most part hates cameras aimed at her and whose gallop is so short that it's impossible to see without a really good set of binoculars.
