jump thro hoop?

I seem to recall somebody posted a pic of their hav jumping tho a hoop?? Can't find it tho. Anyway, Whimsy loves running at full speed and jumping through a hula hoop for a treat. It is a bad angle, but she's just flying like a bullet! My daughter is holding the hoop and I tried to get a picture of her in mid- air. They are so fast it's hard to get an action shot that isn't too blurry.
Who's picture am I thinking of with a hoop?

That is sooo funny! Excellant picture. Yogi jumps thru a hula hoop too! We've tried numerous times to get a good picture, but with stupid digital cameras, you never get the picture when you push the button...it's always delayed, so Yogi is always out of the shot! Drives us nuts. I've tried to push the button early, but haven't been able to get that timing right either! Good Job!!!!!

Great picture. Love it. Almost looks like she's jumping ten feet before the hoolahoop.

I love your picture. Rikky loves to jump through a hoop also, but I've had no luck in getting a good photo.

Hint ..most cameras have a function that you can set so when you press and hold down the shutter button it just takes a rapid bunch of pictures... one right after the other. You have a pretty good chance of getting something that way. I forget what that function is called.(Sometimes your hav is even too fast for that LOL)

Thank you for pointing that out. I need to sit down with the manual to my camera, read through it thoroughly bit by bit and work with it to learn all the features. Even though it is a fairly inexpensive model, I believe it has that feature - is it 'sport mode'???? I get frustrated with my camera as well - expect the picture to 'take' when you push the button. That is going to be one of my winter projects - learn how to use the darn thing!!!

Cute picture of Whimsy!

Yes, she should be at least a year old before starting to jump.
