I was hoping to get a shot of grebes performing their beautiful courting ritual today, however they apparently don't like barking dogs or screaming kids. I should have known better than to go somewhere "quiet" on a Sunday!
This one was just about moving into position "A" when a loose labrador decided I was ******* fascinating and went berserk at me. The owners did a fantastic job of doing absolutely nothing. They will make wonderful parents. The dog I can forgive, it was just being a dog; but I do get really freakin fed up with being jumped on....
Anyway rant over... & thanks for looking...
Better zoomed, by the way...

Excellent shot mate, I hate ignorant dog owners, I see them down at Richmond park frequently, they are jaw wagging about everything and nothing, whilst their dog is frightening herds of deer, F*****G Idiots, I go at them as noisily and as angrily as I can. Sometimes with a tirade of profanities that turn the air blue, but then I am a south Londoner, that's what we do :) I agree we cannot blame the dog. This government is fond of making oppressive laws against us, I think they should pass a law that all dogs in public should be leashed ZERO tolerance for offenders. I have on occasion been moderately attacked by some idiots dog, jumping up my legs and barking, On one occasion, I had welts on my legs from the dogs claws. Guy said "Sorry mate" My reply was, "too late to apologise mate, it doesn't exonerate you from being a total dick-head"
