Timid

Newer Older

While cycling over to the wind farm outside Tintagel i passed a field of cows, and doubled back for a closer look... I've never known such inquisitive animals, as soon as i was stood at the gate the entire herd came wondering over to look at me.
They were so very cute, obviously still quite young, and not really sure what to make of me, they stood watching me, jossling for a good view, but quite noticably scared. At one point i moved a little too quickly getting my camera out of my rucksack, and they all ran off, only to come back a few seconds later :-)

    thanks for the comments :-)
    @xplosive - yeah, colour saturation tweaked in lab mode :-)
    My fave cow is the really prominent one just left of centre. I got the impression he was kind of unofficial spokesperson/cow, but somewhat forced into it by being pushed forward from behind - you can see from his stance that he really didnt want to move any further forwards :-)

    Its almost like a crowd pushing forward to ask you a question - but what? And the one at the back is acting so cool in a "ask him if you want but i dont care" kind of way.
