The expressions of cows

Today I took out the camera it has been awhile.

I headed for the heifers next door and caught these cuties just in time.

The tongue shot was just good timing she had been eating molasses.

These cows lay on the edge of the round bale so this is why they have hay all over them. They do not seem to mind at all even if it is picture time.

Cows have many expressions and I love trying to capture their true personalities.

Scamper the miniature Hereford

Last weekend our daughter, her husband, and children went to pick up a registered miniatureĀ Hereford. Meet Scamper she is 19 months old.

She is halter broke, very friendly and has been gettingĀ to know her new surroundings. She and the goats seem to be okay with each other. Andrew has actually walked her a few times this is how gentle she is.

As a miniature, she will not get any taller just stockier. She will top out with a weight at 650# – 850#s.

I am looking forward to more photo sessions with Scamper.

Barbed wire fences and flowers

Sometimes when you’re taking pictures of one thing you notice another.

This fence has seen its better days but I do not see it getting replaced anytime soon because there is not any livestock on the other side. They use this pasture to grow bahia grass then it gets bailed into round bails.

This is a morning glory bush that we planted years ago by the fence and it softens the look of the falling down fence.

Barbed wire fences, a rotted fence post, and purple flowers seem like a weird combination but they make a good picture.

Through the trees

When taking pictures through the trees and brush on a fence line you need to decide what you really want in focus.

I named this image “Through the Trees” it was taken in Texas on a fall overcast day and it had been drizzling rain most of that day.

If you venture off the main roads down a few country roads you can often find some of the best things hidden away.

The neutral fall colors of the brown grass and the bare tree limbs allowed this red barn to really stand out.
