This is a post about how it is not easy to get a good picture of my goats, or my chickens, but how much I enjoy trying. They turn away, then they jump on me. They stick their heads into their dish and only show me their tails. Betty is easier. She is so confounded by the behaviors of the goats, she will stand very still, staring, and trying to make sense of these weird dogs. I can get decent pictures of Betty when she is watching the goats.
What did I say?

Oh, yeah. Well. It is kind of fun, because they make me laugh, and I like laughing.
That is all.
Bravo for getting these shots! It's interesting to see how animals react to cameras. Wimsey always thinks I'm calling to him so he stops whatever he's doing and comes to imprint his nose on my camera lens.
I love Betty's head tilt in the last picture. I can see why you keep trying. :)
Also, your title now has my mind wandering off in a new direction, wondering about the origins of the game Duck, Duck, Goose.
The joy is in the trying, you are right!
I understand so well. If I ever get a good picture of one of my cats, it's pure coincidence. They see the camera coming and turn their backs to me.
You did get some very cute photos, though. Love your menagerie.
Betty looks so much like my Josephine. Josephine was my pet when I was in my teens. She is beautiful :-)
