This is a donkey I made friends with this weekend. I loved the shadow of the Barb Wire across his face...they should be afraid of it... it's not good to have barbed wire around horses, or donkeys.

Hi Linda,

in these days i'm regular on your photos!This time no alligators or water mocassins, but only -so to speak- the poetic image of a donkey.Poetic because both the barbed wire's shadow and the animal's eye seeemingly wide open give a real meaning to the title of your photo.Excellent focus and DOF.Very good also the details of the hairs around the eye.



Awesome macro! I can almost see the soul of this donkey! Details are sharp and good use of the dof. Well done, tfs.

Hoi Linda,
Very nice and detailed capture of the eye.
The colors and clearness are superb.
Very good DOF too.

Hi Linda,nice clear shot with a powerful message.Barded wire around animals is a no no.
Regards Les.

Hi Linda
Fantastic photo... very well seen the shadow of the barbed wire near the eye of the horse, introducing an unexpected narrative in a very sharp and well composed photo with great light, color, and a perfect crop.
Congrats, and boa noite.

Hi Linda, really love the amount of detail you captured inthis shot. You can see the light shining right through the eye. Fiona

a beautful macro that is well composed with the shadow of the barbed wire across the face of your subject. Supurb clarity and detail with a strong subtext in the image.
Very Nice

Hi Linda,
It reminds me of the horse photo I posted a few months ago. Isn't it great to become friends with an animal. It just requires patience and a calm attitude. I love the real close capture and the details on the hair. I guess a slightly smaller aperture would've been better as it would allow for a full focused eye.

yah thats cool! great colors, composition, sharpness, awesome shot linda!
