My magination remains domesticated ;-) This fellow is one of 3 goats who arrived at the shelter today. He was clearly the most outgoing and curious.

Curious expression :) not sure about the shadow but the worn wood gives a suitable framing.

A very good image for the cahllenge. Sharp and nice use of blocking the light from being to pwerful on his face. I like it.

really nice shot that meets the challenge well. Absolutely sublime sharpness on the fence and the goats face and great colours that are set off even more by the bokeh sky. 9 from me
