LOS BURRITOS de CIMARRON.

I love these animals!! They are endearing, rambunctious, curious, winsome and beautiful!

 

The images were made on two separate occasions in the winter of 2018 in Cimarron , New Mexico, at the foot of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.

 

The first day of shooting, I heard them before I saw them.  I had stopped on a windswept,  narrow road outside of Cimarron to get the lay of the land and heard this odd, unexpected sound drifting towards me from the flat plain to the east.  I twisted a telephoto lens into my camera to get a better look and there they were, far away, braying together in their own celebration.  As I photographed they came closer and closer until they were literally on top of me.
