"Wad'ya want ?"

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

This was part of a twenty strong herd which had been watching me set up my camera and tripod for ages! My quest was to film a wide panorama..Eventually, most of the herd mooooved through a gap in the fence leaving this trio to stare me out. I made friends with them and decided to make them the subject of my interest..and this is the result..

It appears that Holstein/Friesian cattle are one and the same..I'm no expert but if you click on the link you can decide for yourselves!

Looking for some friends maybe? ;-))

It's a good shot Jim, and I especially Like the dramatic background sky. :-)

But hey!! Watch the horizon! ;-)

A very Happy New Year to you Jim!

roeli bindels~~~Hi! Roeli :) Like your new Avatar, it's great! I'll be having a chat with the cows about your invite soon :))

PerO the Viking~~~~Hello Per :)...It's good to see you here. These guys were not the focus of my visit but they would not leave the scene. so what else could I do except make friends!

MirceaRAICU~~~~I agree _Mircea :) they are quite likeable :))

Danila B. Lepikhin~~~~I did a lot of "shooing" here Danila but they were so obstinate and very friendly, I guess they just wanted their photo taking!

To each of you, I express my sincere thanks for all your precious comments, your "likes", but above all, for taking the time to stay a while

Sturdy knees and a pink nose. I've quite fallen for the lead inquisitive cow. I always forget how green grass can be, although we've had heaps of rain in the last couple of months, this is truly emerald green. Very lovely, Jim.
