Romancing the bovines

Title: Kiama Hinterland
Photographer: Darren Stones
Location: Saddleback Mountain Road, Kiama, NSW, Australia
Date and time: Saturday 25 April, 2009. 3:23pm.

“Inquisitive, enjoying the view, and happy to meet and greet. That was something the frisky Kiama bovines and I had in common this day. Whilst driving towards the summit of Saddleback Mountain, I spotted these beauties with their lovely ear tags. Suppose they’re an adornment for a cow that’s hoping to attract a bull, and given this spot was devoid of another bull with a camera, I had first dibs at luring the darlings closer to my wide angle zoom. On my side of the fence the pasture was waist high. So, I grabbed a large handful of grass and offered it as if it was an expensive box of milk chocolates.” – Darren Stones

    I think they’ve seen that trick before mate – they don’t seem to be falling for it yet!!! That area has so many B&W cows – just love ’em.

  • They seemed interested.
