Taking Advantage of a Photo Op

Posted by
Kathe (Marquette, Michigan, United States) on 16 July 2009 in Animal & Insect.

Also taken during our trip to Maryland. Henk and Tanya live next to a horse farm, and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to photograph the horses. And this horse apparently couldn't pass up the opportunity to pose for the camera. It was originally munching on some hay to the left of these trees. But when it looked up and saw me with my camera, it walked over and stood between the trees just long enough for me to fire off a couple of shots, then wandered back to its pile of hay to resume its supper.

Makes you wonder if they know more than we think they do, doesn't it? ;^)

@Marcie: Thanks, Marcie. But, as I've said, I didn't have to frame it - the horse just sauntered into that position, posed for a few moments, then resumed feeding. Very artistic Arabian, don't you think? ;^)

Kathe ... congratulations on being listed as one of AM3's top American photobloggers.

PS: Some of your photos must not be in your portfolio, hence the 91.8%.
