Gravity-Defying Pics Of Determined Dogs To Catch The Frisbees in Mid-Air

Most dogs are known to enjoy the odd game of catch with their owners, but these stunning action photographs reveal the incredible heights they manage to reach as they soar through the air to catch a frisbee.

Italian photographer Claudio Piccoli specializes in dogs, especially dogs in action. That, he says, is when he, and perhaps the camera, can best see their souls.

More than a decade after he spent his childhood playing with his grandmother’s beloved pet, he grew an interest in photography at university.

His third dog made him ‘get even closer to the dog sports, especially to the disc’, he told the Daily Star.

Mr Piccoli, who boasts a 73.4k followers, would take pictures of his pets on holiday and dog photography grew from there.

Talking about air-bud! These amazing pics show dogs catching some serious air as they go after a frisbee.

His photos of dogs in mid-air highlight the incredible athleticism of canines.

He said: ‘I ask for small variations in the throws or in the positions of both to get what I think is the maximum athletic expressiveness of the dog in the air.’

The Nikon Ambassador said the first few times tend to be the best performances and nothing can be left to chance.

He added: ‘An incorrect position completely cancels the effectiveness of the action as well as an incorrect environmental contour.’

He has trekked across Italy, Netherlands, France, United Kingdom, Estonia, Israel, Canada, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Finland, Switzerland, Austria and Poland to create the breathtaking pictures of dogs playing catch. 

Last September, the dog-owner-of-four photographed Zinga and Sara at sunrise in Toronto’s Scarborough Bluffs park, while he has also had a dog-owner kneel in the North Sea as their beloved pet leaped across them to reach a Frisbee mid-air for his photo-series.

“It usually requires a lot of preparation,” he told My Modern Met.

“It’s very important to explain to the owner what we want to do in the shoot and what we are expecting or how they should move in the action to be photographed correctly.”

It also takes a lot of patience.

“Dogs are not machines or models we can pay to do something, and every dog and breed is different” he said.

“It’s not (through) forcing a dog that we achieve a good result. It’s working with the dog with a flexible shooting that we can reach the soul of that dog, he explains on his website.

Piccoli lives with four border collies that he says “inspire me everyday.”

Same Crocodile, Same Place 15 Years Apart- Steve Irwin’s Son Recreates His Father’s Most Iconic Photo

We are living in a world that nothing is guaranteed forever. due to extreme pollution and global warming and harmful thing happening the earth is becoming a big mess. Not only for humans but also for animals. They have been massively going on extinct and unprotected by human harm and evilness.

Nonetheless, the rates of extinction that are currently taking place are actually comparable to the rates that took place when dinosaurs were wiped off of the face of the planet.

However, there is still a ray of hope when it comes to people who actually care about other beings except themselves.

I bet Everyone knows the late, great Steve Irwin. He left behind an incredible legacy. He was a crocodile hunter with a heart of gold. Now, his loved ones are doing their best to carry on the tradition. His children Robert and Bindi have continued their conservation efforts. Irwin’s wife Terri is also heavily involved.

When we remember steve we see that all he ever wanted was that all the animals in the Australian Zoo where he used to work to be treated with the utmost respect. If these animals are not given the chance to hunt down moving prey, they are more likely to become extinct. That’s why the efforts of trained handlers are important. Without their assistance, the crocodiles are unable to feed in the proper manner.

His son Murray made a recreation photo like his father did but 15 years after a very iconic photo of his father feeding the same crocodile. Now, Robert is the one who is responsible for his welfare. The Instagram post went viral and was liked by every animal lover out there. And Robert hopes he can shed light to everyone about animal rights welfare.
