Camera Critters

 
 
 
 
Posted by Picasa



The Lion is the symbol of the Dutch nation, but actually a real symbol of the Netherlands could have been these cows, for we have plenty of cows and no lions at all, only in the zoo, and that is a caged one! These photos were taken in October 2007

For watching more critters visit Misty Dawn's place. She is so kind to host this meme! Thank you Misty Dawn!

I enjoyed the pastoral scenes with the cows & dramatic skies, but the last ‘reflective’ one is my favorite today. Thanks for sharing. Mine’s up at Small Reflections.
Hugs and blessings,

The reflection shot is wonderful Wil. One always thinks of India when it comes to cows. I did not know they were the symbol of the Netherlands.

Janice Thomson said...

OOps LOL - I missed the one little word 'could' be the symbol. Thanks Wil for correcting my mistake :)

All very good photos... I'm especially fond of the final photo of the reflection... but then I've always been a sucker for reflections but that one is very good!

And proper cows they are too! Like ours in the UK. Fresians are what we call them.

Lovely natural photos for critters. Mine's up too.

Yep - cows and wood clogs! And Tulips! They can't be missing in a Holland image!

Loved all the pics, but that last one of the cow + reflection wins me!

Wil: The cows definetly do much more for you then any lions.

Love these dairy cows--they always make me smile when I see them out in the pastures here and in Wisconsin. Such amiable creatures.
The photos are great.
Have a great week!

I enjoy cows, especially the longhorn variety. These are very nice, too. I especially like the reflection.

babooshka said...

Great series, but the last one floored me. That reflection I wasn't expecting. Fabulous.

It almost looks like you were in Indiana taking those pictures. Common scene around here.

That reflection shot is terrific!
Haven't seem any Fresian cattle for a while.

Reader Wil said...

Janice,you didn't make a mistake. I didn't write it correctly. I corrected it by rewriting it and putting the word could in the sentence'. Come to think of it: The duck could also be used as a national symbol! LOL

Aileni said...

I haven't started posting pics of the cows we cared for yet - very fond of them. Much friendlier than lions.

Dragonstar said...

That last one is my favourite, too - I love reflections!

Reader Wil said...

Thank you all for the wonderful comments! Have a nice day!

Like the last photo of the cow and her reflection in the water.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

We have plenty of cows in East Gwilimbury too, so you made me laugh. But today my blog has dragonflies.

My wife is going to get a kick out of this post. She loves black and white cows. Can't wait to show it to her! Great post!

No critters at Nature Trail today only botanical pleasures!

Christy said...
