This is what I'll do to get a good photo of a critter:
Fortunately the paddock was dry. I'm not sure I would've done that if it was muddy!
And this is one of the shots I got:
Valentine the Angora Goat
(she was just 3 days old at the time)
About two weeks ago, my good friend Sandy and I visited a local ranch/rescue facility.
Baby - a diabetic Pomeranian
Buddy - a senior Boston Terrier
Sandy and I spent about three hours there, petting dogs, cats, horses, an opinionated pig and Valentine. Of course, we took lots and lots of photos. I've posted a selection of photos here, you can see more on Flickr.
By the time we left that day (in supremely happy moods), the toes of our shoes, knees and elbows were dirty and we smelled like eau de equine. I also had a wet knee because I hadn't noticed a puddle of dog pee in the house before I knelt down to take some photos!
