Cheshire countryside....................................... and a Moooooo!..ving moment

I was out and about this afternoon and stopped to take this scene of my local countryside.

 Cheshire is famous for it's dairy herds and of course Cheshire Cheese.

 I had only taken a few images when suddenly the whole herd started to walk towards me.

They really are curious beasts.

 "It's that bloke with the rambles blog... he's always taking pictures"

 I was suddenly the main attraction.

At least from their side of the fence.
I love unplanned moments like this... make me smile every time.

How cool is that! I love unplanned moments.
Your images are beautifully pastoral, Andrew!

My husband grew up on a dairy farm, with Holsteins (Friesians), he says there isn't anything more curious than a herd of cows. They just have to know what is going on. You are lucky you don't have nose prints on your lens. :o)

Judy said...

I wonder why they all had to come for a closer look? They do look so content in their meadow!!

Are you sure they are friendly cows. They look a little miffed to me. haha.

Hi Andrew, maybe they thought you had some food for them. Some of the cows we had when I lived on the farm, loved company, and yes they are curious.

The Herald said...

Andrew, do you get this much female attention every day?
But...did you check out the 'bits and bobs' on the mean looking one with the nose ring, 'cause I think they only use them on BULLS!! (and it's the only one with horns!)...[;o)

zooks said...

I love visiting your blog. The cows and one bull make me smile. Wonder what they are thinking. What is that curious Photographer looking at? Thanks for sharing.

I'd have been scared stiff thinking that the fence is rather flimsy and would have pictured myself as flat as a cow pat with a multitude of hoof prints on my back.

Susan said...

Isn't it funny how they will all come to check you out? I have had the same experience with cows. Great photos Andrew!

Nancy Claeys said...

Now, you weren't tempting them with an ear of corn, were you?

Great shots, Andrew. Thank you for sharing at Rural Thursdays.

What a womderful collection to sit and drink my morining tea with. I don;t have any cows here but I do have a creek. Those fellows/gals were really close. I cannot get that close to the ones across the road. They certainly are looking at you ...wish we could know what they were thinking. genie
