Thank you so very much for your wonderful comments, everyone! I am really pleased with your kind responses on this image!
I was watching four horses eating grass with my daughter Kate, for about 15 minutes, when suddenly one of them lay down in the flowers and took a short nap. We were really surprised with this view, so we were looking at him and laughing. He looked so peaceful and relaxed in those flowers. I took a couple of photos of him from above and just this one from under the fence, when he put his head down for no more than 30 seconds and closed his eyes. It was so wonderful and I was so happy that I caught it!
Once again for your kindness, everyone!
Monika
