What great great pictures, and how much fun to see them. In all the time I've ever taken pictures, I only have gotten 1 interesting candid, the imfamous "Bowling for cats" picture of my colt last X-mas when I tried to get a cute Christmas shot. I got him to hold a present, then stepped back to take the picture, just then one of the cats was strolling towards the colt who then lowered his head and bowled the present right at the cat, I wish it was a split second later as that cat went straight up to avoid being hit with the present, my colt had rather good aim.

OMG, keep 'em coming. These two photo threads are the best threads that have been started on here in recent history and I am enjoying everyone's pics!
Here is my absolute FAVORITE picture of Frodo, EVER. This IS his personality, to this day. He is playful in nature, usually up to something but casual about it. He kills me with his sense of humor sometimes and I love his expression. He was successful in untying himself, he did not go anywhere, he just did it to do it I guess:
This is one of my FAVORITE photos, it was during a photo session BUT he was taking a break to change the roll, se we wernt expecting a picture, I was just loving on him. and this is what he got. Its of Zorba who passed away last year and I hold this photo really close ( gosh what a pansy im starting to cry )
I think it's mostly luck! With a bit of planning, at least having the camera ready. But my favorites seem to be just lucky shots where the shutter went at exactly the right moment and I had no idea what I'd actually taken until I opened it up at home and noticed the details.
This on has to be one of my favourite candids. I was attempting to take a photo of my paint mare through my QH's ears. It was snowing and a big fat flake fell at just the right moment.
From that same day I love this photo of my filly. She was tearing around like a maniac and I was just pointing and shooting and praying I was getting something good. It was luck I caught her at the top of her rear.
Oh, I love this thread! I am in awe of the fabulous photographers here! I think it's all about being in the right moment, and sometimes pure luck - but there is a little bit of an "eye" needed sometimes just to know that it could be a good shot.
I have shared these before (the best subjects in the world are ponies and little girls):
