I took this last year, I believe, at my parents' farm in Gulfport, Mississippi. I had gone out to take a few shots of the horses, and this young fella--jet black, but you'd never know from the setting sun throwing red streaks in his mane--became really curious about what I was doing. He followed me around everywhere, sticking his muzzle in the camera, ears pricked forward, eyes wide. At this point, I had attempted to sneak behind a tree, get a good shot of the sun sinking into the horizon. But two seconds later, his head popped from around the corner and I literally clicked the button at that very moment, not meaning for a horse's head to be in the foreground of the gorgeous sunset.
At any rate, it turned out cute, I think, and proved to be a rather humorous memory of that late afternoon.
Peace, Love, and Junior Mints,
