Photographed with a Canon 400D.

This bovine beauty was much more interested in chewing on something & dreaming about the night’s entertainment than listening to our requests to pose for the camera.

I really liked this composition with the old shed country shed behind.
I think it’s the shearing shed.

This is the Pioneer Village in Wilberforce & was shot during the fun Redbubble Rumble on Nov 6, 2011.

Thanks again to all the guys & gals for a fun day.

Wilberforce is north of Sydney, Australia.

202 views as of Apr 3, 2012.

Country born & bred but now located in Sydney, Australia.

I’m fascinated by the beauty of nature & in particular Australian native flowers & landscapes. I also love colour & anything unusual.
The Blue Mountains are my favourite spot at the moment.

    it’s good to see one of her standing. I was worried earlier when she just lay there moaning with her tongue out. .. .. must have been that ferocious heat

  • Yeah .. must have been rough for her. With those thinnish legs & bulky body, I can imagine she’d be sitting quite a bit.

    You’ve done well Michael … the cow seems to be cooperating and you’ve got the angle and focus really good … I like it … well done♥

  • Thanks Bev. At least it wasn’t moving too fast. It’s rare for me to go without the tripod but it frees you up a bit.
