He has food in the cage but he prefers the gentle boil is born free ... As I understand it!
An allegory of freedom! Beautiful image. A hug friend! Adela

Hope he gets his horns back through!

Great shot, it would be sad if she did get her horns caught, but some kind photo guy would be there to help; I'm sure.

Hi friend!

Let me post a comm without anything to do with your daily image...(I appreciate your work and the way how you handle the light....

But I'm back from a comment on Suzannes'page and this is not the first time I saw that you are very ...against windmills...(me too)
Are you living close to somes? Could you perhaps share you experiment? I'm curious...Hope to read you on my pages...(Sorry all my explanations are in french but you are kindly invited to visit...)

@Vent-de-Folie: The basic maths that I refer to contain these factors:- Energy density-extractable energy per unit volume Energy availability-how often is the energy available(Is the wind blowing?) Energy efficiency-how good are the best designs at extracting the energy, and converting it to (say) electricity Water turbines score highly Wave machines score highly on availability, and density, but poorly on efficiency Windmills at sea score highly(High wind availability), but loose out on energy transmission losses to get the electricity to the shore Land Windmills score the lowest-low energy density, low availability, low efficiency Solar (PEV) scores lowest of all in Europe, due to inefficient design, and poor/unpredictable sunlight availability. New collector designs will make it above land-windmills I don't factor in cost per KWH, as cost is mostly do do with government funding which they can switch off or on at any time

Tede from Aubenas 07, France

For him it is the best, a true gourmand !!!!!! Superb image. Good day.

Fine capture. Interesting horns

Don from Spokane, United States

I like the tension in the shot of the animal stretching as far as possible to get what little bit of greenery there is to be nibbled. Fine action shot.

Tamara from Aarschot, Belgium

Hahaha...fantastic ! Great capture Chris. Have a lovely weekend :)

It must taste delicious. Very nice shot.

At least there appears to be no barbed wire to stop him from looking, animals
will always find ways to get to the other side. The light sure makes the goat
look attractive.

Michael Fresh from Chester, United Kingdom

They are the nicest horns I've ever seen...!
