Longhorns – Sunrise in September

I love cows and enjoy photographing them when I get the chance.  I’m always intrigued by their social structure and in awe of the fact that they let me see them just being them.  Here are a few from a recent trip at sunrise . . .

They bond to each other and are very affectionate.

This is a mother with her calf and they were very accommodating.  I asked them to look at the camera . . .

. . . then to face sideways.

This is the bull of the herd, I didn’t ask him to do anything.

Longhorns in the Snow – Part 2

Here are a few more images from my outing with the incredible longhorns.  This is the big daddy of the group:

I was surprised to see a blue-eyed cow:

They are very social animals and seem to enjoy each other.  Here are two young cows that stuck pretty close together:

They are also very careful with their horns – they have a great sense of where they are at all times.

I love cows and to be able to be so close to these guys and have them be so comfortable was truly amazing.  Thanks for stopping by!

Longhorns in the Snow – Part 1

Before the second big snow storm, I had the opportunity to photograph longhorns (here in Virginia) with Kathy Winkler, a wonderful local artist who specializes in painting longhorns, though she also takes commissions for other animals including dogs and cats.

I’m a big fan of the bovine so I jumped at the chance.  Here are a few of the images, I’ll post more later.  The thing that struck me about them is they are very family oriented.  They welcomed us, but kept a watchful eye.  It is calf season, after all.
