How on earth did you get the camera that close?

I sure miss my horses. All have passed on and went to horse heaven.

I too, could basically do whatever I wanted with my horses and I really enjoyed the bond I had with each one I owned over the years.

Take Care.

Jim said...

Hi Donna -- Thanks for the visit.
My horse, Minnie, too went to heaven. I rode her to high school [Nebraska] for two years.
Is Libby a 10-meter horse? She looks like a kind pony.
p.s. I'm envious of the Gold Wing.

Astaryth said...

I am fascinated by the eyes of animals. One of the first things I have done with each new (and improved) camera/lens combo is see how much better I can do pictures of eyes!

And, Blue's are definitely beautiful!
