Was on Heath Common last night where the gypsy horses graze , this foal was so friendly I had a right job to photograph him , he followed me all over and just wanted to be petted and he tried to munch on my tripod.
I will take some carrots next time lol.

Nicely taken, with gorgeous late light on the little fella. You've had to hold back the exposure a bit to stop the sky blowing out, which has worked well but left the foal a little dark. That's easily fixed with a curves adjustment, which makes the image a bit punchier — just grab the line with the mouse, about three-quarters of the way along and lift it up a bit.
