Back to the levee

Donkey with head in pickup truck window

A curious donkey extends a welcome to her territory on the levee. Fortunately, her deep curiosity was matched with outgoing friendliness, a good thing when she has big teeth and outweighs me by 800 pounds or so. Click on the picture to see our original November 2014 post, Miss Donkey Congeniality.

In November 2014 we planned a trip to Elaine, Arkansas  to shoot the jillions of birdhouses residents have seen to put up in the small Delta town, but a a split in the road leading to a nice stretch of levee with a good gravel road was too much to resist, so we headed down the levee to see what we could see. We did not expect to have a curious and friendly donkey stick her head in the cab of the truck but she had different ideas.

It was a delightful experience and an exercise in one-handed wide angle shooting since the camera to subject distance was minimal at best. Click here to see our original post, Miss Donkey Congeniality.

And be sure and see the first part of the trip on the Photo of the Week page at Corndancer dot-com. It’s a trip down the “Balcony of the Delta.” You’ll see blue skies against golden harvested rice fields, cypress trees and a lot of levee cattle.

Thanks for looking,
