Odd Shots: Nose Shot


I was photographing a herd of cattle in a field in Barton village. They saw me standing near the fence and came right over for a chat. This particular cow actually bumped the camera lens. I saw her coming through the view finder but I guess I misjudged how long she would take to bump into me. She and I are just fine and I got this shot. For more about this heard, see here and here. When clicked, this photo will open, full size, in a new window.

Thank you for visiting!

  2. Oh my...she wanted a kiss. Cows are very curious creatures and generally like human beings. They love to be scratched and kissed. If you kiss one they will all come over for a kiss. They will even kiss you back with a lick across your face or your hands and if you have never been kissed by a cow, and you are female, you need to try it once and then try to explain the feeling to your hubby.

    Their tongues are absolutely amazing and feeling something like a soft wood rasp.

  9. What an interesting angle! Sometimes it's the outside the box thinking that makes for a great photo!

  10. Now, see what happens when you start nosing around with a camera? :-)

    I'm not nearly as much of a romantic as Mr. Lincoln. Whenever my neighbors cows come over to me, I assume they think I might have some feed. Cows think with their stomachs, not their heart.

  11. Wow, talk about up close and personal!! I'm glad you are both okay. You got a great shot out of your intimate contact, but did you get the camera lens clean? lol

  15. What a great photo, Andree! Her face is so very clean and soft. I want to give her a little scratch!

    Abe's comment knocked me over, too. Next time I see a field of cows, I'll give it a try and keep my camera ready!

  19. Definitely an odd shot, Andree! A little too close for me! :D

  20. It's large enough for me -- the only thing enlarging it would do is to prove it has a runny nose! Great odd shot tho! I probably would have been scared and fallen backwards and broken my camera!

    I am late because I was busy this past week but finally made it.
