Local Wildlife

By Adrian_Reynolds    
Some shots of wildlife around me here in Shetland. Some of these are years old now taken with my old Nikon so I thought I'd put them up.

If anyone can identify no5 I would be grateful, seems like a cross between a Shetland Pony and a Dalmatian (DalmaponySmile) It was in a field with only a single track road running past so I only had seconds to grab a shot and let traffic pass, It was gone when I returned.

Just wish I could give a vote to each shot, Adrian: each is so good in it's own way. Had I to choose a winner{s), it would be your puffin in V 1 and the dappled Shetland pony in V 5.......each a superb shot. Would lobe to see ,ore of the wildlife from way up there in Shetland.

All fine shots Adrian, but the over the shoulder Puffin, is one of the best I have seen for detail/exposure


PS I believe Cheryl S, is off the Isles in a couple of weeks

The pose and details in V1 are just wonderful and means it just has to be my favourite from an oustanding set today, though I rather think I may have fallen in love with V5 and your wonderful name for that little sweetie! (And this from someone who really doesn't like horses/ponies very much!)

Five excellent images! V2 makes me long to go back to Shetlands.

Where is no 5 taken Adrian. My sister used to have an Appaloosa horse which was marked like this one. How small is it? Is it the size of a pony or larger, I think there HAS to be Appaloosa in this one. Loving the pics!!
