After waiting some time for this fellow to come out from behind the tree, he eventually capitulated and gave me a decent pose.

Happy Easter weekend, everyone - see you all next week.

Like the way the horse fits in to the tree Rob. I think I might have been tempted to crop in a little tighter on the left side.

Love the soft lighting. He's just a little shy, that's all. Nice portrait.
