Sunlit Cows

See how the red of their coats shines in the sunlight.

These cows are on the fields near Fen Causeway in Cambridge. The river Cam is just a couple of hundred yards to the right of this scene, and Tamara and I walked along the river and sat awhile, yesterday. It was so calming, to sit among the greenery, and watch the trees dappled with the light reflected off the water.

We stood by cows and listened to the tearing sound as they pulled the grass, on and on, non-stop. Their lives are composed of eating and sitting down, with maybe a little pushing and shoving for a change of pace.

    We had such mellow weather yesterday, didn’t we? These cows were their usual lovely selves, and I love to hear the rhythmic tear, tear, tear as they munch on the grass.


    1. That takes me right back there. x
