Silent Sunday - Cows


"To country people cows are mild,
And flee from any stick they throw;
But I'm a timid town bred child,
And all the cattle seem to know."

T.S. Eliot

A beauty shot of a lovely bovine pair. So Country girl, or City girl?

Stick to cats, T.S.!

Jen: I think I'm still more city than country when it comes to cows. *smile*

I read a lot of blogs that feature photography but yours is becoming my absolute favorite - I love your photographs - it's not just that the subject matter is different than the others I read but that you capture something ineffable.

Well hello there, Laverne and Shirley :-)

They can sport some real attitude at times, even to a country person.

Grace: Thank you so much! What a lovely thing to say. I blush.

Jane: I know, right?! *grin*

S. Etole: I've seen them thundering up to a fence - hoping for food, I'm guessing. These two were on the other side of a fence, you can be sure. *smile*

I have always liked cows. In fact I prefer them to all other barnyard animals ~ I think it's their quiet strength that appeals to me.

Haha! I enjoy cows. They have the prettiest eyes.
Hope you are keeping warm my friend!
