Dogs love treats — that we know. But when a gifted photographer was able to capture the moment right before dogs caught a treat in their mouths, the world got to see just how much they live for flying food.

Using a photography technique in which motion appears frozen, German photographer Christian Vieler was able to capture the gleeful (and sometimes desperate) expressions on dogs’ faces while trying to catch a tossed treat, Design You Trust reports.

“Every shoot I am looking for that specific moment when the dog is looking as cute or funny as they can be,” Vieler told Design You Trust.

He certainly mastered that in this photo series. Here are our favorites.

2. This dog’s expression is so real it almost doesn’t seem real at all.
