Mmmm grass!

While out shooting the autumn colours, we stopped to hand feed some cows.

This one seemed quite happy to take handfuls of juicy grass off me.

    lol - one handed? nicely done - almost a funhouse mirror perspective
  • David de Groot said:
    Well it's hard to pass up a cow really. ;-)
    Indeed she did, and later in the day we found more (shaggy ones), so I have some different cow photos to come.
    I like the odd, wildly exaggerated perspective shot like this.
    Much more interesting than sheep, that's for sure. Although chickens come in fairly high on the interesting side of things too - ours follow us around if we let them out of their yard.
    Thanks Kane :) Took a few attempts to get a decent one.
    Yeah one handed and not looking through the viewfinder either.

    Thanks :)

    Great shot. I have tried this a few times, but its hasn't paid off yet. This looks great.
  • David de Groot said:
    Definitely took a few to get this one, but I'm not 100% happy with it and will try again at the next opportunity.
  • ronnietan15 said:
    ah, i hear its great for cleaning lenses ;)
    ive tried approaching cows from the side of the road, most of them run away :(
  • David de Groot said:
    Ah see you need to grow a beard, wear an Akubra hat, jeans and boots so you look the part, and be an animal-type person. ;-)
  • leadegroot said:
    Cows have always seemed to like David.
    Not sure what that might mean ;)
  • ronnietan15 said:
    haha would take me my whole life to grow one like yours :(
  • Margot- said:
    Mooooo! Hehe - new pet?
  • David de Groot said:
    Nah, just a cow I met on the side of the road :)
  • looby88 said:
    not sure what that means either Lea...
    best we dont go there perhaps !!
    I like cows too : )
  • David de Groot said:
    Bah! Animals in general like me and for the most part I like them (just not those spiders, can do without those entirely).

    I love this!
    5D II / 17-40 L ... My dream setup, drool.
  • David de Groot said:
    It's not a bad setup at all, although 16-35II would probably be better still (albeit more expensive and harder to get filters for).
