cows in the field

these are some random cows i photographed out in a field up near the city of taft near the central valley in california. i was up there for a meeting one day and took the camera with me in hopes of finding something up there photo worthy. there wasn't much as you can see, but the beautiful black cows grazing in the lush green grass. i'd never seen so many black cows in such a beautiful setting before. the funny thing about the photo is the one white cow in the photo looks like it was p-shopped, but it was just sitting there looking at me while the rest of the cows looked on. sometimes i feel a little awkward taking photos like this. the local people were probably passing me on the highway in their pickups wondering what in the world i was doing. city folk don't see cows very often. if sophie or ava would've been with me i probably would've treated the experience like a trip to the zoo, seeing that this is about the extent of animal exposure my little ones get besides the occasional lizard on our historical 1930's wrap-around swing-laden porch (i mean, 7'x7' porch that i can't do jump rope on). :)
