Curious Cows !

If you stop beside a paddock of cattle they run away, but if you stay they all turn around to look at you and would come up to explore.I have sat in a paddock full of cows for 20 minutes and at the end i was surrounded by curious cows 30 of them all sniffing me.As soon as i stood they scattered.

@Linerberry: yes they are fun , but the light wasnt good and i should have increased my ISO.

Oww, great capture. Reminds me of that one time when we walked over a field with weird danish cows to get to the sea, and they stared at us just like that, and they were huge and something in their stares made us wonder if maybe cows are carnivores after all. I tried to stay as far away from them as possible, they are quite huge up close...how brave of you to face them like you did.

A terrific shot, and now you've got me wanting to test this myself. The first field of cows that I find......... ha ha

Blimey, sitting in a paddock full of cows for 20 minutes; not something I've ever contemplated doing! I'm obviously missing the high life here and I'll have to try it next time I'm in the country; thanks for the advise! Meanwhile; it's nice to see the cows in your pic; interesting cut of the shot to reflect the line of the cows! Great!

Mooo!!!! I like your crop here and the way it creates a panarama effect. Cows are such gentle creatures despite their size.
