a face that only a mother could love.....
You got such a cute smile and a tilt of the head and this is what you have to say? ;)
A herd of cashmere goats.... we were combing them to get the cashmere wool...

I've never seen a cashmere goat...They look incredibly soft, are they?  Pardon my ignorance for asking.

Very soft fur... You comb them out in the spring when the soft undercoat comes loose, but the thicker guard hairs are still attached. Otherwise, you get the soft and hard hairs mixed in together and you have to pick out the guard hair.
The best camera is the one in your hands

A few more from my last Kenyan trip. All taken with 5dmk111 and 300f2.8mk11. The wildebeest make for dramatic photo opportunities when crossing the Mara river but the downside, not all make it, some break legs and can go no further whilst others are taken by the large Mara crocodiles.

The contrast of that lens is just lovely!
