Shady Ladies


There was standing room only under the branches of a lone tree in an Ohio pasture. It was growing conveniently close to a fence, so I was able to snap a few shots of these curious cows.

Love those dappled patterns!

They look so placid, but I'm guessing that if you went for the calf, you'd see different beasts altogether!

The cows look as if they'e thinking, "As long as you leave us the lovely shadows, you take take our picture." Lovely photos.

Wonderful capture! I do like the B&W version, it seems focus on the shadows more. :)

They seem to have that look that says "I hope you have a release for this unauthorized use of our images"...but that would imply that they are deep thinkers :)

They are lovely ladies though!

Those are fabulous shots! Love them!
How nice that they were near the fence!
Late in making the rounds this weekend-was at Picurus Pueblo yesterday for their Feast day and heart-stopping pole climbing and dances. I wish I could’ve taken pictures, but none were allowed of course.
