Good capture but i would have cloned out the branch in the background.....it is very distracting and tends to draw your eye away from the main topic. IMHO

I agree but I left it in on the first one I posted yesterday and was caught in the trap. Thanks for your comment Gordon.

Love the image but I do agree the donkey with a twig through its head is a little distracting (probably only because it has been pointed out but I can't stop looking at it now!!).

Great shot in every other department

I can just imagine you standing there for an hour watching these capers. A good candid Dougie and what a super little meadow.

Great shot

This image expresses exactly what I always ment when I said in the past, I want only one day during which no one is calling me MAMA.
Meanwhile I'd be happy to hear it again!
Beautifully taken, love it.
