She's got her eye on you. It looks like she is scratching her neck on the nails.

I love the look on her face!

That is the chicken said...

Perfect marriage of words and image! I wonder what kind of scene she might have made?!

AB said...

A bad case of itchy chin!

Your animnal photos are an inspiration ... I must try to get a little closer to them next time I'm in cattle country.

Paula said...

Moooooooo!!!! How did you get her to pay attention to you? Had you met before?

Paula Werner Severo said...

wondefull! really nice shot!

Martina said...

CiB - yes, that is exactly what she does :-)

kobico, yes, me too.

Chicken, hm, I thought she was telling _me_ to not make a scene ... hm... .

Joan Elizabeth, yeah, I am waiting for blackfacesheepportraits!

Paula ... Muuuuuuuuh! (It is an Austrian cow, so she speaks German).

Paula W S, thx, :-)

That the cow seems to have eye-contact is priceless. And the way she exposes the white in her eye - rare in an animal eye - gives it a completely unexpected human quality.

Walter Neiger said...

priceless expression on her face ... it seems to be good :)

Martina said...

I didn't know this, Markus, about the white in animals' eye. That's interesting because I couldn't really explain what makes this "portrait" so different. Thx :-)

I see you do indeed have a soft spot for cows. ;) I love the soft contrasts...and that look. One of those moments when we're glad we brought the camera. I'm so glad you did. Lizzy :)
