Thank you for all the wonderful comments and generous votes. Very pleased to get a personal best with an animal photo.

I was fortunate enough to be in Ireland when this challenge was announced and there are farm animals in abundance over there - even more than Somerset. So I had quite a few photos to choose from. This one did have something special though.

I can't believe I am saying this, but I really like the expressions on the Donkey's faces. For some reason I can almost picture them playing poker, or pool(billiards).

There are many donkeys in the area where we live and they are often treated with a heavy hand and little food. This image is a celebration of how a donkey should be. Happy and free. Congratulations on a superb image and a well deserved blue

They made me laugh out loud.

Well done.

Needs a bit more contrast, in my opinion... but I'm certainly not an expert.

This is beautiful, definitely my favourite. The donkeys have arranged themselves rather musically. 10

..so they lined up for the annual family picture, only Reginald (2nd from right, already finished a bottle of red wine before they even started dinner) making his funny faces again.
Great picture, Great Models, Great humor! Ribbonesque

They're adorable! I might have cropped out the extra space on the right, but still one of my top picks in the challenge.

Awww, they seem to like by the way they've gathered around you. Maybe a good sign that you're giving good vibes ;)
I love the expression on the donkey second from right. In my top three. All the best.
