Saw these cows in a pasture... pulled off next to the "no tresspassing" sign (SO not like me at all) and shot them. :D

Mr. Bull came up... I looked at the gate again to estimate its holding power against the mammal...

Determined it would hold and shot some more. That's when Mommy Cow turned her head.

They were sweet to watch. Well... that bull... not so much.

I know some will hate the processing... but I love it for this country look. I almost titled it "Norman's Bovine" (as in Rockwell. It looks like a painting to me...)

Lunch break! Mama looks patient, maybe a bit resigned. Like the DOF here.
