Many thanks for the great response to my Highland Cow image uploaded yesterday.

I shall return to our images from Mull soon, but wanted to post this image tonight as I really like it.
I captured this just after dropping one of my pupils off after her driving lesson, and as I pulled away I noticed this face pearing at my through the crop and long grass in a nearby field.
I managed to park up again and slowly walk back, getting just one shot before he turned tail and ran off across the field.

I was pleased to get the poppy in as well as it adds a little bit to the image imho.

Thanks for taking the time to look.
