We saw this curious and sweet little fella at the Cumberland Fair in Maine two summers ago. Though the colors might be a little saturated to compensate for the overexposure of the original digital file, I didn't alter the color of his eyes. My guess is that the blue of the sky coming in through the barn door has been reflected here.

Since I didn't have time to work on a longer post tonight, I thought I would just share this cute young goat with you, and wish you the joy of your own sense of wonder. It's one of our greatest gifts. This goat sure seems to have it!

  1. What a cute little guy! It's great that his eyes are reflecting the blue instead of red that usually happens when a flash gets used (I'm assuming you didn't use one). And the title of the post is perfect for the photo. Cindy at Rosehaven Cottage

  2. Cute goat, there's two words I'd never thought I use in the same sentence, nice shot showing the blue of the eyes.

  3. that's incredible Lynda !!!!!
    beaut contrast with his eyes and that rich orange/brown.....
    he really has that look doesn't he :)

  4. Very nice photo. I noticed something when we take photos of the people we get red eyes, but so far seeing on your photo and someone else's photo of the cat, and my photo of the cat, I am convinced that may be the pigment or something else makes animal eyes blue, or I could be totally wrong. Like the shot a lot. Anna :)
