You are being watched (steers, Pohangina valley)

A few cans short of a sixpack
Walk past a paddock of steers and they'll come trotting over to check you out. It's as if they have no idea of the concept of a human being. Curiosity and trepidation compete in their small brains — move suddenly and they'll fling themselves away, only to turn and trot back. I can't help thinking they're not the sharpest knives in the drawer.

Photographed a few years ago, along No. 3 Line, Pohangina valley.

Absolutely beautiful. The light on the textures of the hair is perfect and the contrast is divine! Of course, I do love cattle.
