More croppings, birds and beasts

So before I know it I've collected a whole exported file of scores of cropped details.  A few ground rules are needed.  I only crop in a ratio of 5:3, that's a widescreen format apparently.  It's more challenging.  And I'll try to sort them thematically a bit when I post them.  So here are some non-human non-plant beings.

Long-eyed beauty

Rumours of my connections with the Lord of the Flies have been greatly exaggerated...


The Limousin bull (he appears quite often in my other blog)

One for Crafty Green Poet (Bunny Hugger!)


Not very fast mail

Blue regard

Hitting soft sand.  She had to get into one.

These are magical, Lucy. Thank you for stopping by my blog. I love the texture in your photographs, and the wit.

Lucy said...

My, you were quick! Thanks, and you're on my blogroll and feeds now so I'll certainly be back.

These are wonderful, especially the eyes. And Dog.

That last one made me laugh - you must have clicked that shutter at the most precisely right moment!

what a lovely series of photos - thanks for the beautiful bunny! I agree with Julie - that last photo is wonderful!

Do I detect a note of apology or guilt in your reference to cropping. I rarely produce a photograph which I do not crop. Is there a shibboleth among photographers which prefers them to print the picture they compose in the view finder? I have often wondered, but if the answer is yes, I have to wonder why?

I like the chickens. Little fat brown hens are just the cutest things.

Very nice collection of critter pictures, tho I certainly like the horse best of all.

I love the bunny rabbit!! I had one for nine years, growing up.

Hated Lord of the Flies. Glad to hear you're not really very connected. haha.
