Pleased to meet you!

A pleasing sight of cows

When I saw that today’s WordPress Daily Prompt is Pleased, a little smile came to my face, as I a bit pleased with an idea that crossed my mind.

The idea was to put a smile on your faces with a bit of silliness.  And who knows more about creating a silly scene than a bunch of cows trying to get their picture taken?

Cowparazzi!

The source of this image is a bit amusing, as I actually was trying to get a landscape shot of the farm, where these cows resided.  However, curiosity got the better of these wonderful bovines, which brought them over, just in case I had some food for them.

During my (then) rather lengthy daily commute, I always opted for the scenic route, which, albeit 10-15 minutes longer, was much more relaxing than using the highways.  And it had the added benefit of providing some interesting scenery to enjoy!

The Cows are Hamming it up!
The Cows are Hamming it up!

One of the points of interest is a set of farms near the Massachusetts/New Hampshire border, one of which literally had a road right through the property of the farm.  This did make for slower travel and the occasional scent of true farm life, such as organic fertilization; from time to time, I would stop here and capture something or other.

On this fine day in April, I wanted to get a bit of a wider image of the cows feeding in the very New England farmland (read: large rocks intersperse grass and mud).  However, the cows had a completely different idea!

As soon as the cows saw that I had pulled over, they decided to come over and find out what I was up to…after all, there may have been food involved!  So rather than getting the wide shot, I got this wonderful close-up of the cows vying for attention.

I hope you enjoyed visiting page 11 and feel free to take a look at the entire book at the following link for the softcover versionInstant Grammar 2013 by Frank Jansen.
