Donkey close-ups on a Saturday morning

I’ve likely said it previously, but animals have become my favourite subject matter to photograph. Saturday’s plan was take pictures of a little church on the prairies near Regina that I spotted last year, but the road to get to it had been washed out. After successfully finding the church, and enjoying the peacefulness of the scenery, we set out to see what else we could find to photograph. We were driving down a dirt road where I was hoping to spot an owl on a fence post, when we came across these donkeys.  I’m always excited to add new animals to my photo library! As soon as I got out of the car, they wandered over and one obviously let it be known it would happily pose for pictures.  I didn’t realize what friendly and curious animals donkeys are (at least these two were!).  That’s the fun of photography – you just never know what you’ll find.
