"Chewin' Cud"

Fresh organic milk
Sun bathin' and chewin' cud
Lucky dairy cows 

Lucky for a while at least - as long as their milk production stays high.  I loved this shot because not one cow is seen in it's entirety.  So, perfect for "Partially Seen in January".

A great composition and nice colors. I read your poetry which I find very evocative. You have the ability to find the right picture. It is hard for me to find a poem and a picture to go with it and you, you write your own poems, congratulations.

Cows are so friendly, don't you think. I get to see black angus on a regular basis, since OSU has its agricultural acreage right in the center of my town. It was once considered country, but the city grew around it.

That's downright fun, Margaret. I agree about the composition! :)

I love this!
Just a smiling "feel good" shot, and you know the first thing I noticed was the fact that not one is in its entirety! Makes it such a neat shot!

This is really so perfect for the "partially seen" theme - wonderfully spotted!

Regina & Olivia - Thank you.

Vagabonde - Your compliment means more than you know. And I love the amazing efforts you put into your blog!

Tess - When we lived in Petoskey, MI, the first house we lived in backed up to a cow pasture. The lovely sounds of mooing and the sun setting on Lake Michigan (and a glass of wine) was TOTALLY relaxing. Yes, they are gentle creatures. ... too bad I just love a great steak fillet!

Ginnie - I love the compliment as you are a great photographer!

Lisa - Yes, you would notice it. You've got a great eye.

Justine - :) It is all due to your prompt!

Rosie - I thought so :) I don't think I would have ever shown it ... This "partially seen" challenge has made me take a whole knew look at my past photographs. (most have not been taken this month)
