The Goat at the Fort

View images from around the world at SkyWatch Friday.
~~~

One day on my way back from exploring the magnificent Amer Fort in Jaipur, I heard this little fellow asking me to shoot a picture of him...

I did, and then he asked if I could take a shot of him gazing at the Aravalli hills...

Then he gave a pose of his side...

Then one more with the background to the entrance to the Fort...

And then when I muttered something to the effect that I've had enough of similar shots, the little fellow nicely changed direction and posed for me...

I descended with a smile after thanking my cute little model.

What a gorgeous leggy goat with lovely floppy ears. His colouring is quite unusual, to my eyes, anyway :-)

The spotted goat visits the castle on a lovely sun filled, blue sky day. He certainly did a good job posing for you, didn't he?

Thank you for your kind words everyone. The Amer Fort Fort is one of the more photographed monuments in India, and I'm sure there are many photographs of it online but am not sure how many you can find with a goat in the foreground!

I'm glad you like this, and your feedback is always encouraged and greatly appreciated.
