Down on the Farm



A mother Cow watches over as her new arrival poses for the Camera

I find that I always post wildlife so here are some domestic critters for a change. The calf pictured here is about two weeks old and its mother is extremely protective of it. Out of all the cows in our herd this is the one you have to be careful of when working with her calf.

It's always nice to see a beautiful creature, wild or not :)

Would you say domestic critters are easier subjects compared to the wild kind?

Cows in particular can be much slower than a bird ;)

It's a great shot. I actually love the shadows.

Nothing like a fresh white-faced baby calf to make you smile in the spring! Nice capture.

Oh yes, I've had many a run-in with Mamas who are rather protective of their new babies.
