Critters...

Maybe one of these days I will get a good capture of the Northern Harrier...I am happy that this one seems to be staying out at the strip pits. I passed through them on the way to and from Paris yesterday....I got the capture above on the return.
And these cows belong to a farm about a mile on west of the strip pits...I stopped to take a picture of another calf, but before I could get out of the car it had laid its head down and would not look my way for love nor money. I thought his one had a cute little face, too.

This farm did have 3 horses, for the longest time. But I have not seen any of them in a long time so don't know what happened to them. They were well loved...always raised up and looked if we passed or paused...even if they were on the far side of the pasture. You just knew they were thinking someone had come to see them...but in all the time I have been there I have never seen anyone out there.

They look so nice and fluffy...The ones down in the valley are coated with mud from the rain we have been having.

I don't know which one is cuter - the little tough looking calf or that sweet mama cow in front. :)

I think all cows and calfs have sweet soulful faces. :)

Cows are lovely looking creatures, stubborn and can be stupid as well, but they do pose well for photographs!!

I like your harrier shot...since I've never seen one in person. The cow's attention and interest helps make a good looking picture. Nice one, Rose.

I love your picture of the Northern Harrier! It's excellent!

Some cows are cuter than others - this is a sweetie! And it has a real interest in you and what you're doing, but doesn't seem at all threatened...

Looks like a wide open view of the Harrier to me... his wings are spread wide! =)
