18/52 “That’ll do, donkey”

This little donkey seemed so friendly. I think he thought I was going to feed him. The two horses in the pasture bolted but he came right up to the fence and stuck his nose all up in my business. I tried stepping from side to side to get a good profile, and hopefully good eye to eye contact, but when I moved right, he moved right. When I moved left, he moved left. I think he wanted to eat my dangling lens cap. When I didn’t deliver, he gave me this “donkey on the edge” look, so I took the shot, said “That’ll do, donkey” and in two shakes of a donkey tail, I bolted.

Photo of the Week series: Every Sunday in 2012 I will either share a photo from my archives or something new I just can’t wait to get feedback on for future art shows/exhibits.

Blogger participation: My hope is to receive enough input on each week’s photo to later post a Bloggers’ Choice of the Month and wrap up 2012 with a Bloggers’ Choice of the Year.

  1. What a lovely photo, maybe the donkey was trying to tell you “I’m prettier than the Horses” I love the look the face has, “something tells me its time for you to leave”

  2. Great shot. I like them but I usually keep my distance with donkey’s because as a kid everyone of them I came into contact with (which were quite a few) tried to bite me. I never could figure out why. Thank you for sharing.
