Même si c'est au zoo, cela n'en reste pas moins une très belle photo. La composition verdoyante est agréable et le tête du mouflon qui pointe derrière le rocher donne un air coquin ;-) Belles couleurs, bonne netteté et exposition.
I like your perspective, Martin.
The head only image of the animal goes very well with the surroundings, giving a good sense of its habitat.
Very good colours, contrast and depth of view.
What a lucky shot! I imagine he didn't stay there for long once he spotted you. There is great sharpness and color saturation here. I'm jealous of this shot!
Thanks for Sharing
