Fly Me To The Moon

By Fefe
Hello everyone! Hope you all had a good weekendGrin
Continuing the Highland Cattle "mini" series that is getting longer than I expectedWink I have gone for a "mono" conversion today but when I say mono, I have added a very slight sepia tone. Full frame again.
Todays title inspiration has come from the little fly inflight heading for the cow's eye. Hope you like it..................
A great big thankyou for the votes and comments on the last image "Be Alert" and the series so farGrinGrinGrin

I love this, the monochrome certainly brings out the softer side to these wonderfully charming Highland Stock.

Pleased to make this your 30.
Their colour is a glory, but I do like this very much,
it concentrates us to the super coat texture and those
eye lashes !
