This is my second portrait of the donkeys from Miranda do Douro. We can recognize them because of the white spots around the eyes and the long hair. We can find several donkeys from Miranda in the Complex of Salt Ponds from Samouco, situated on the southern bank of the Vasco da Gama Bridge, right opposite to Lisbon.
This was once an area where salt was largely collected. Now, this activity has practically disappeared in this area, but since the 90's of the 20th century, when the bridge was built, a Foundation has been created to keep a Nature Reserve here, where some salt ponds are still kept and the many birds species who come to find food in these wet lands are protected and studied. Several donkeys from Miranda can also be found here, like these ones.

This is a charming double portrait of these donkeys. I like the colours and the obvious softness of their fur and I also like the green plant that the nearest one is chewing on. Its mouth and ear form a fine diagonal.

très jolie celle ci aussi, tant pour le cadrage avec son oreille qui semble d'une longueur immense :-), bonne lumière et couleurs

They are so cute! As you know we have a lot of those wild donkeys in Southern Nevada. I like the tight cropping. Good pov and sharp details. Well done, tfs.

On dirait bien que tu t'es faites deux nouvelles copines. En tout cas elles t'ont laissé approcher de très près. Le cadrage est excellent avec ce ciel tout bleu en arrière plan.

Olá Ana. Muito giro! Bela foto! Capturaste muito bem esses bichos com ar simpático. A compo é muito equilibrada e "dinâmica", quase do tipo que se espera de aqruitetura e paisagem e não de "retrato". Abç.
