I am using a Sony SLT-A77 with a Sigma 50-150 f2.8 HSM lens. I was sitting in a chair and my wife was throwing the ball from up on a deck. It only took about 250 shots to get these! I just got the lens and was testing it out to make sure it would get these shots while I still had time to return it - it's a keeper!

Great shots! How old is your setter? We'll be getting our first this spring! I can't wait.

Jen,

Cassidy will be 5 in January. She is 1/2 Irish Setter, and 1/2 Gordon Setter - a mistake at a Irish & Gordon show dog breeder.


My other post features Rae, our 10 year old AKC Gordon Setter.

What type of setter are you getting?

Gary
