Highland cattle taken a couple of weeks ago from a low angle to get the blue sky in. It's amazing that they can see with such long fringes. They were quite happy to oblige for the shot and were more interesting in eating their hay than posing for me. Handheld.

thanks for looking and for all your comments.

They are just wonderful.
Lovely colours to those wonderful shaggy coats.
I wonder if they see everything as a blur ?

Lovely composition and I really like the way they mirror each other and give the image nice depth. BTW, the further one is poking it's tongue out at you! Wink
