Nice capture! Cheers, Christian

Thank you, İsmail, Christian, and Billy. We were at a complete stop until they passed.

Do you notice that the cattle are Brahmans) originally developed from those familiar in India? I was surprised to see them in Brazil, but apparently they stand heat better than many breeds.

An excellent shot, Marilyn!

What a very exciting moment to witness! I wish I could have been there with you! I can almost hear them now!

Very best regards,

Thank you, Andreas, Elisabeth, Margot, Erik, Agios, Hank, and Mary Alice.

After all these lovely comments, it's confession time! I was sitting in the back seat of the car, on the right-hand side. When we were stopped by the cattle drive, I took one shot through the windshield (the windscreen to some, I guess), and it came out pretty well. But then I handed my camera to my husband, asking him to lean out his window and grab a shot or two. And this is what he got! Of course it took a bit of cropping, etc., to get the image you see, and I can take credit for that, but it's Hugh who took the picture.

I certainly never expected to witness such a classic scene!

Hi Marilyn big thumbs up for Hugh than.... and you for some additional editing.

Like you say a classic scene.

Best regards, erik

Another great capture, are those cowboys called gauchos?? I found the info about the heat tolerant Indian breed cows. They look so sweet and docile. Well done Marilyn!:)) Greetings, Irene

Marilyn Whiteley on October 17, 2009

I'm glad you like this, Irene. It was an unexpected sight and, yes, I think these are gauchos. Greetings from Guelph, Marilyn
