I finally went for a walk with my “real camera” in tow. Mind you, I now have a real camera because my mother got a new camera for Christmas and I now have her old one – plus a big lens and superb tripod and carrying case. I still need to figure out how best to carry it all and not ruin my back and neck, but I am so happy that I carried it on this particular day. I walked by a ranch that has a small herd (if that’s the right term) of goats. They are so attentive as I walk by but are usually far from the road where I am walking. This day, however, they were very close to the road and the little kids decided to show off by climbing all over a wood pile (and they enjoyed eating bark, too).
I caught this one in a rather unflattering moment, but it makes me laugh so I decided to share it with you:
I had a bit of a surprise as I was out walking – I knew this small ranch had several adult cows/steers, but I hadn’t spotted this sweet calf before. He had wandered into the nearby trees and was sampling bark as a meal.
When he heard the camera he spotted me. We had a short staring contest before he decided to go back to snacking.
