Farm Animals & Chicks

Llamas and Cows and Chicks, oh my!  Like horses, we humans have a relationship with domestic farm animals, but so few of us are able to enjoy daily contact, to understand their rhythms and habits, to get to know their indivdual characters.  I strive to capture something in each animal portrait that tells you a little something about the creature's character.  This page features a number different species, including some captive zoo animals and backyard wildlife.
