...a field full of buttercups. For a goat at least.

I drove past the field on my way home from work one day. I don't often take this route, unless there are major problems on the Interstate that I normally take. I saw the big field of buttercups and remembered that they had goats there that the children liked to visit and feed. I returned with my camera a couple of days later and as luck would have it, this one gave me a nice pose and smile.

Tehehehe....this would make a fine image fo a calendar, very romantic....for the goat.
I do like the surrounding buttercups though


Hi Werner
A nice capture with the goat looking at, and connecting with, the camera. The goat and the field of buttercups are both in focus and well exposed.
I wonder if you could have zoomed out a little to accentuate the size of the field in comparison with the goat.

  • Great

Bravo et amitié

This goat must feel like he is in the middle of a Las Vegas buffet! I like the posing. Good lighting and nice details. Well done, tfs.

Hello Werner, a sharp shot with the contrasting textures of the goat and the wild flowers, as well as the contrasting colours.[ Not the camouflage theme then?]
Great the way that the goat is looking straight at you!
Like the title too.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Ciao Wrner, great capture of cute creature, wonderful natural colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
