...and Living Dangerously... :) Found this sweetly sleeping little bundle of fur at the Sauer-Beckmann Farm in Stonewall, TX completely oblivious to the fact that he was being scrutinized by the barnyard rooster...

So pretty. Love the tones, softness and texture. I can't believe he's just sleeping though, I have a feeling someone is going to be in trouble soon.
