#122-365 Girl

Also taken at the Farm Funtastic, this little girl was in an enclosure with a diverse range of other babies, cows, sheep, goats etc. The two chicks in picture were so enthralled with her that they boldly walked up and started pecking at her blouse. She never panicked, just reached out grabbed the chick by the head and picked it up (by the head) to look deeply into it's eyes, the chick never paniced either (Only the child's mother panicked) she was made to put the chicken down.

It was a wonder that the hoots of laughter from the mainly adult onlookers (Me included - not as an Adult, just an onlooker), didn't make the animals nervous, but it didn't, all the young creatures just kept on enjoying each other's company. As our star moved over to have a closer look at the goats etc the chicks just tagged along, pecking at her top - maybe it was the pink!

Now that was a catch - this is absolutely adorable (what a surprise coming from you)! :) Those chicks probably thought "another baby"!

I have been on vacation and the last two weeks have been crazy. Looks like you have been making some great posts. I love this picture of the little girl. The expression on her face is priceless.

That's so sweet! You really captured a good one here Ron. You're getting quite adept at charming the ladies and getting wonderful pictures of them.

How utterly charming! She has such a look of delight! The pink of the top really pops. And you've really captured the moment of the fearless child and chicks. Many a child would have started screaming, especially after being pecked. Great capture and sharp eye to get it down. Wonder if the Mum got any photos of it all too. Too bad if she didn't. This is a once in a lifetime happening which the child should have to reflect upon as she is older.

Good job!
