Donkey for D

I met Violet today at the Peoria Zoo; what a sweetie! She stood and let me rub her ears for the longest time. And then she allowed me to take her picture as well.

Because this was taken with a Lensbaby, the fence came out looking rather dreamy, even ethereal, which is not the usual appearance of fencing at a zoo.
Really like the way you focused this - the lighting adds to the softness yet the details are so clear. Well done, Denise. Fav

really like the sympathetic softness, very dreamlike/ethereal.. the focus on the eye is beautifully done, still the softness but backed by clarity.. great reflection in the eye too.. love the whole thing..

What a little beauty she is. I can imagine the time you spent communing with her, and how loving and therapeutic it was to both of you! She gave you a beautiful photo!

@nicolecampbell Thanks for that expressive comment, Nicole. I appreciate your sharing that thought. I've since added to the commentary that the picture was taken with a Lensbaby which has given the left side its usual appearance. While I first thought the fence was going to wreck the picture, it ended up giving it unique character.

@Weezilou "Therapuetic"... for sure! It was warm in the sunshine where we were standing and she was half asleep as I scratched behind her ears. If I happened to stop or slow down, her eyes would open which I took to mean "Don't stop yet, please."

@jorlam So appreciate your in-depth evaluations and comments on photos. You really see the details which makes the effort to get them all the more worth it. :)

This one is a beauty... the surrounding blur focuses the viewer's eye right were it needs to be. So dreamy and delightful.
