Travel Photo of the Week: Goat Fights at Katsuyama


There is a festival going on this weekend at Mt. Katsuyama in Okinawa, Japan.

The name of the event is the Shiikuwasa Flower Matsuri but, I went to shoot the goat fights.

A couple of other things happened while I was there trying to compose these photos.

The idea, was to get Mt. Katsuyama in the background.

That's a fairly tricky thing to do.  I almost had to get in the ring with the goats.

It turned out to be a great day and over 400 more photos are waiting development.

Camera batteries need charging and some beer stuff needs to be done.

So, I'm outta here for the day !

I don't like animals fighting but it's a beautiful photo and looks a lovely area.

Okispice and Freya,
Thanks for stopping-by.It was an amazingly sunny day yesterday. They probably should just call it a head-butting contest. The goats don't really fight.
