Heilan' Coo

Posted by Jason Politte (Conway, AR, United States) on 17 April 2011 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

[Scotland Series]
Sept. 9 2010 - This day we made our way to Glamis Castle, and upon reaching the grounds, I was treated to my first view of the marvelous and somewhat intimidating Highland Cow. They're actually quite gentle, although the one we tried to feed was rather ill-tempered. He bopped my wife on the hand with his horn before ramming another cow from behind.

Interested in purchasing prints of my photographs?

My wife Karen also has a photoblog at Open Door.

@franz: Thanks Franz for the comment! I guess the news on our recent severe weather event really made it around the world. Fortunately the worst of it went about 30 miles south of us. Thank you for the concern.
