Photographic Encounter with Normandy's Peaceful Equids

in Photography Lovers5 months ago

Hello dear Hivers, I hope you're well ! Yesterday we were lucky enough to get to the countryside a little early. I have to say that it's been a long time since we've made such good use of our time... But I'll tell you all about the organisation next time !

This short walk is an extract from the much longer one we took that afternoon...


We were also spoilt for choice by the weather - it was a truly fine, cold day and we were travelling along a road lined with dense hedges. You can see from the reflection on the road that the area has not been short of rain in recent days !


Through certain gaps in the dense vegetation, a movement accompanied by a rustle makes me turn my head and discover this donkey watching me peacefully...




A little further on, these two particularly curious horses welcome us to the edge of their field.


When I tried to give them a bit of grass, the one in the foreground blocked the other one and I found it hard to be fair...!

In other news, I've finally got my Sigma 17-70mm lens out again. I have to say that I'm very happy to be able to use this versatile lens again, which allows me to take both wide shots and close-ups.


But in the neighboring field, another curious creature is approaching...



He's an old donkey, apparently very used to contact with humans.



Very quickly, and clearly intrigued by the presence of his friend with such a similar genome, the donkey is joined by a young horse, also curious...


But already, the ride must go on ! And it's almost with regret that we leave these two affectionate equines.

I hope you have enjoyed these images and I thank you for your visit, a very nice day to you all,



All these texts and images are mine.

Bonjour chers Hivers, j'espère que vous allez bien ! Hier, nous avons eu la chance d'aller un peu plus tôt à la campagne. Je dois dire que cela faisait longtemps que nous n'avions pas utilisé aussi efficacement notre temps... Mais de toute cette organisation, je vous parlerai une prochaine fois !

Cette petite promenade est un extrait de la bien plus longue que nous avons faite cet après-midi-là...


Nous étions aussi gâtés par le temps, un vrai jour de beau temps froid et nous parcourions une route bordée de haies denses. On peut voir au reflet sur la route que le coin n'a pas manqué de pluie ces derniers jours !


Par certaines failles dans la dense végétations, un mouvement accompagné d'une bruissement me fait tourner la tête et découvrir cet âne qui m'observe paisiblement...




Un peu plus loin, ce sont ces deux chevaux particulièrement curieux qui nous accueillent au bord de leur champ.


Lorsque j'ai voulu leur donner un peu d'herbe, celui au premier plan bloquait l'autre et j'ai eu bien du mal à être équitable..!

Une des autres nouvelles, c'est que j'ai enfin ressorti mon objectif Sigma 17-70mm. Je dois dire que je suis très heureux de pouvoir réutiliser cet objectif polyvalent qui me permets de faire des plans larges et de vues serrées.


Mais dans le champ voisin, voilà qu'approche une autre curieux...



C'est un vieil âne, apparement très habitué au contact avec les humains.



Très rapidement et visiblement intrigué par la présence de son ami au génome aussi proche, l'âne est rejoint par un jeune cheval, lui aussi curieux...


Mais déjà, la balade doit reprendre..! Et c'est presque avec regrets que nous quittons ces deux affectueux équidés.

J'espère que vous aurez apprécié ces images et je vous remercie pour votre visite, très belle journée à tous,



Tous ces textes et images sont les miens.

God knows I can’t move close to this donkey
No matter how harmless an animal could be, I don’t move close to them
I usually admire them from afar but I’m always scared of them

Haha, I can understand 😅 Some may be quite agressive if they had bad moments with other humans !!

Is the barbed wire on the fence harmful to animals?

Yeah ! Me too :) Moving to the countryside was also a good choice about that too !

Thank you dear @jasonmunapasee, have a good start of this new week 😇
