My goodness, those are happy cows! May, this is an absolutely beautiful photo, full of wonderful bright yellow flowers and deep chocolate brown fur.

And these nice cows even like having their picture taken! I once made a whole herd stampede away when I pulled out my camera.

Thank you, Ryan! Maybe they are too heavy to run off. ;-) They are used to people, since the farms are small and the cattle rarely more than 20 - 30.

I am glad, the poor cows can't see their sisters burying their heads in this abundance. And fortunate for those here, that they don't know, they are so well fed just to end up as some steak on plates. :(

You are very lucky then. The color in your photos reminds me Sigmund Rise's pictures.

Greetings from Chile.

Why lucky, Erwin? ;-) If I was a cow, I certainly would like to stay in a field like this, literally land of milk, honey and chocolate! ;)

But I don't wish to enforce this opinion about Switzerland. I'll show you some technical and architectural shots sometime. Some really good ones are in this gallery.

Oh, these are dandelions!? Seeing so many together, I assumed they were something else. The dandelions I've seen here are very scarce by comparison. Based on what you said, these must be very healthy cows! Cheers, Ryan

Oh yes, Ryan, they are healthy and produce this healthy milk, which makes Swiss chocolate and the big Swiss cheeses so famous. ;-))
