Cow Intermission

Can you see the little one nestled in the reeds? It took me a bit to find her, nestled in the reeds as she is. This spot is soft, and tucked out of the wind and very comfortable. I know this because I spent  time lying on my belly, in the reeds, right next to a fresh cow pie, to photograph her.

Mom came along in short order which made me a tad nervous. The other cows gathered around too but I figured as long as I lay still in the grass they weren't going to do me any harm. I kept a close eye on mom though.

She checks her calf over. 

She begins to lick...

and clean...

 she gets under the chin...

... and finishes up the other side.

There that's better. All done.
