Eyes of Affection

A friend of my aunt's owns four donkeys. They are just the sweetest things. As soon as they see you, they come right up to the fence to say hi, and if you go into their enclosure, so eager are they to be near people, they literally walk into you. You just want to hug them; luckily, these donkeys love getting hugs. When I was last there, I sat on the ground to be at eye level with them and they were thrilled: they all came over and circled around me, nudging me if didn't distribute my attention evenly. I took this photo to try to capture the warmth and affection they showed me.
