  4. Calee, these are some fine looking bros. Nice capture of them together. Did you say moo-moo-moo? Or something like that to get their attention? πŸ™‚

    • Thanks Yvonne! haha, I wish I’d thought of that πŸ˜‰ No, I waited patiently until both of them took a break from eating grass!

  5. What a wonderful photo. They seem to be happily posing for you. Lovely! Paulette

    • Thanks so much, Paulette! It took a while to get them to look up (they were busy eating), but finally they stopped and posed for a nice shot. πŸ™‚

  6. A great shot of some unusual looking creatures, that seem to be a cross between wild animals and domesticated cattle. I love the texture of the “fur” especially and the shape of the heads.

    • Thanks Mike! These are domesticated Highland cattle, and as you can see they’re wearing the special MP3 players πŸ™‚

    • Great picture, Calee. Mike, you know what the texture of the fur reminds me of ? Of these old-fashioned teddy bears.

  7. And suddenly the snow disappears, the grass is grown and two beautiful cattle, after eating the grass, pose together for a photo, saying “cheeeseee”

    • Lately this can happen several times the same day… It’s snowing, then green, then snowing again.. Thanks for visiting, Giuseppe! πŸ™‚

  8. Great photo of the brothers, they are looking so strange and sweet.

    • Thanks Bente! That’s what I think when I look at your reindeer pictures πŸ™‚

  9. Calee, their coats match the texture of their surroundings! Nice catch! I love the rich warm earthy colors.

    • Thanks sweet Wendy! They are cute, aren’t they? But I didn’t dare to go near them, when they’re that age they tend to be a bit “playful” πŸ˜‰

  10. Great photograph of fine looking animals; what puzzles me is why human beings eat them

    February 11, 2013 at 1:32 PM

    • Thanks Eddie! I wouldn’t know, but I guess for the same reasons people eat regular beef.

  11. Wonderful duo.

  12. The texture of the cows against the texture of the background really works! There also is some great color echoing going on between foreground cows and background. Makes it a very interesting photo.

    • Thanks so much, Janet! I was lucky that a) they stopped chewing grass for a second and b) they did that in a nice place and not next to the ugly fence or so πŸ™‚
