When I was as kid growing up in the Italian countryside. I was surrounded by animals and when I found my father's camera, which was a 35 mm Miranda from the 60's, I became fascinated with it. So, I decided to take movies and images of all the nature I saw like dogs, cats, horses and birds. My first project was “The Animals”.
In an unusually squirrly pose this little guy poses for the camera doing his best acrobatic performance.
It's like this bird just knew the camera was on him. The cutest thing. He swung his head around like they do for the perfect picture!
This guy was just too comfortable. Having a lazy day in paradise and unconcerned with what I was doing at all! We could learn a lot from him.
Horses here are free and peaceful and at once, adventurous. This fellow was enjoying eating in the field after a quick run with his mates.
As creepy as the snake can be—this was the most beautiful snake and flower picture you'll ever see. Not a common site for everyone.
It's almost sad to eat bacon having captured this little cute face on film. He ran pretty fast but I managed to get good enough at it to get a perfect shot.
Found this little guy as is. But, it's pretty much nature!
He wasn't too happy about being behind that fence.
This is the most candid view of a horse and a horse is a horse of course! Remember that one?
This fellow was the quickest picture I even took. It's a little hard when it's a hazard turning your back on a goose!

Who says black cats have to be scary? This little guy is leaping off a branch to chase a field mouse.
This little Italian finch was just braving the rain. Unconcerned with being wet and ruffled. Just sitting in his peace.
These are a rare site in most places and I was fortunate enough to catch it!
This randy rooster is crossing the road as it goes in the saying. But, what's on the other side we may never know.
