Well, I trespassed into a large pasture and got this shot just after the feed truck dumped the food into the longest trough I ever saw. There were many more cows eating than what this photo shows butt enough is enough :)

I cannot believe this shot is doing so well ..it was up to 7.8 for awhile! I am aghast because it appears I will be looking at it for a long time. I so don't like cows and especially cow butts.
But I sure appreciate the votes and the wonderful comments. I wonder where it will place. Fingers and toes crossed.

What an honor to have Yo_spiff think it might be an entry by Judi. Thank you!

I can't believe it! Thank you so much!
A huge special thanks to my team! Go Longshots!

Still haven't changed my mind about cows .. still hate em all

Oh Maggie!!! What a GREAT photo!! One of the coolest cow photos I've seen! I'm so sorry you don't like cows because this score is a hard one to beat, so you might be looking at cow butts for at least a few challenges :) MEGA CONGRATULATIONS!!

How funny. Didn't have time to vote, but I do remember reading in one of the threads that you don't like cows. The irony is not lost on me :)

Somehow I think this could be the 21_F.gif Judi entry. The style just looks right.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/30/2010 09:50:52 PM
I love this picture. I feel a more DOF for the background would have immensly improved the picture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/30/2010 08:13:57 PM
absolutely stunning. broad border takes away a bit impact but amazing photo 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/30/2010 07:05:13 PM
C(h)ow line, lol. I like the borders, but maybe a bit narrower. I wish there were just a touch more dirt as I see trees first, then immediately look to the flanks. GREAT idea and your DOF and focus is very good. Overall, this is a fun shot for me and not the everyday shot most see when they go out to shoot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/30/2010 05:43:16 PM
That is classic. Nice catch.
