Everywhere I go these days, it seems that cows are following me. Cows, cows everywhere. They are a friendly lot but they do ask a lot of bizarre questions. “How did we get here?” “What happens after we die?” “Does God really exist?” They can be a bit nasty if you don’t answer them or say you don’t know. I caught one sticking her tongue out at me as proof. But generally they are pleasant and even offered me a bit of chow, a bath in their pond and a romp in their fields.

Ah love it. Look at that cow sticking her tongue out. Lol. Great pictures, but that’s no surprise now is it? 🙂
Thanks! Yes she was not happy. 🙂
Cow’s are udderly adorable…did you tip any during these shots?
Nope, no tippin’ this time.
Good boy, though I do get rather enjoy that. Great shots.
Awesome pics! I love cows!
I find these pictures these very mooooving!
Ha.. Thanks. 🙂
The Cow Whisperer? hehehe…. love it! 🙂
Yes.. That is me.
I love hearing a cow “moo” haha it’s so funny to me. I think it’s because I grew up in a city so when I saw farm animals for the first time I was like no way!!! at everything they do hahah. good pics
I grew up in the country and I still find them amazing.
Cows are usually good company, pleasant, rarely a foul word…..love your photos
Thanks Ray’s Mom. 🙂
“Why did the cow stop eating hay?..To see Seth coming his way with his camera.”
This is true. Thanks Mary.
I like the one where the cow sticks her tongue out…tuxedo cow!
That Carolyn the Cow sure gets around! Great photos!
Thanks! 🙂 This is Carolyn’s cousin Kathy. 😉
OH! How silly of me….of course Kathy!
The Cows of the Baskervilles.
Who could have known how photogenic cows are….very nice!
Yes true. Thanks so much.
Cute! You never cease to amaze me. Funny post:)
Cute one… LOL I usually catch my daughter’s dogs with their tongues out…. too funny! You didn’t tell them what happens after they die did you? : 0
No. not at all. Thanks Keli.
I have a definite soft spot for cows. Even if they are rather curious!
Thanks so much. 🙂 They are interesting…
these are great. i love cows, they are fantastic subjects to shoot, to study and to write about. seeing these pics makes me want to write about cows. 🙂 nice weather too! i love the atmosphere.
Thanks. 🙂 Glad you like them.
Wow! These are pretty big cows. Our Indian cows are much leaner I think..Maybe Indian grass no good…:))
maybe. 🙂 interesting though.
haha believe it or not they’re prolly my most favorite animals. great photos as always ^^
cows scare me a bit ‘cos I could never tell what they are thinking!!! They just look right at you when you walk past by them. Sometimes they seem cute and sometimes a bit weird. Interesting characters for sure.
They stare because they are in deep thought. I’m surprised they’ve never asked you a question.
LOL. I try to stay away from them maybe thats why they stay away from me!
Cows are very good lsiteners and very patient 🙂
D & I met one this past October. Not very talkative but a very attentive model she was. 🙂
She was probably working out some mathematical equation in her head. 🙂
You’d better watch out for those cows! They just LOOK docile. At least these don’t have any horns. I really like that hay field at the bottom.
The mean ones are just frustrated because we don’t have the answers they want. If they ask you a question, just make up an answer. 😉
I saw the title and laughed. I read the description and laughed harder. Way to get attention =p.. who knew animals photograph so well? or is it jusst cows? =p
I was going to write the same thing but you beat me to it! 🙂
That title and opening lines are definitely click-worthy, Seth.
Thanks! Glad you like my silly words. 🙂
Your blog is inspiring! I love the title of this post and the content! The photos are great, of course. May you enjoy many more cow meetings as you travel through life. ;o)
Thanks. Glad you enjoy my work. 🙂
Nice pictures, funny story, thanks
Thanks Katy. What do the cow population of the Czech Republic ask?

Did you ask them where you can purchase their milk? ……. great pictures !
No, but I will next time. 😉
You are truly on a spiritual journey Seth the Red Road and now the Sacred Cow, whos milk is white like the putity of light, love and divine wisdom.
yes Russell I am. Would you like to join me on my journey? I think I’d like to continue my journey in your neck of the words… where is that anyway? England?
the spiritual journey is one we all take alone, when we get to the end of it, we find we dont even exist, we just thought we did .
Again? How romantic 🙂
Love the intro and nice pics!
Thanks jav3d. I don’t know about romantic. 😉
I moved to the state of Florida and it was was mind boggling to see a 5 star hotel and not more than a mile away, you’ll see a group of cows grazing in an open field. Great pictures!
Really? I don’t remember seeing that many cows in FL. Perhaps they are in the inner part of the state and not near the beach. They probably are not beach goers. 😉
I love that you make up stories about what they are talking about! I find that that makes things a lot more interesting! (Not that your pictures need to be made more interesting; as an example, one day this week, I found myself sitting in a car for a little while with nothing to do. It turned out to be a great time as I created a whole scenario about what my gloves were saying about the whole situation…)
And what were your gloves saying? 🙂 Thanks, glad you like my stories.
We have some adorable cows around here that you might like to capture. My sister dubbed them “Oreo cows.” No kidding, their hind end and legs are solid black, as are their head, neck and forelegs, with a wide white band around their bellies. I think they’re double stuffed.
I love your rural and architectural shots. I’m new to blogging, actually new to following my dream of writing for others to read. Thank you for liking “It’s a Question of Grace.” Every like is like a pat on the back. 😀
Oreo cow. hum.. nice. so where is “here?”
In a rural area about twenty minutes from the suburbs of Minneapolis, MN. It always surprises me how close the farms are to the cities. It makes for great photo ops, though.
My son is getting started in professional photography and has done some great pics of abandoned buildings and barns, then the next weekend gets great shots of downtown St. Paul architecture. He would love your stuff. I’m sending him a link. 🙂
MN is beautiful. I have a close friend that lives about 3 hours north of Minneapolis near the North Dakota border.
The cow is of the bovine ilk;
One end is moo, the other, milk.
😉 Thanks Jas.
I couldn’t resist 😉 Do like cows. Lovely photos, BTW.
awesome pictures man! love it. =)
Thanks. glad you like em. 🙂
i don’t know that u love cows this much.. 😛
nway, nice picture as usual~ last pic is nice~
It’s not that I love them this much, it’s that they are always around me. 🙂
haha.. make sense!
Great shots! Especially love the feeding photo!
Cow pictures make me all nostalgic for my college years. My room mate was a fine arts major and she had me model with a field of cows. They were really sweet and these pictures bring back that memory. Thanks!
Funny how a picture of something can bring back so many memories. Thanks. 🙂
I was once horse riding with some friends when we were cornered by a herd of cows. The cows then chased us off the common ground we were riding on. I’ve been suspicious of the blighters ever since.
Were they bulls?
No, def cows. They did have some youngsters with them though. I always figured this is why they chased us away. It was a bit of a surreal moment, and one I’m not likely to forget!
Love cows. But they do tend to be inquisitive beasts!
Nice Igg. I am glad I’m not the only one they ask a lot of questions to.
Cows do seem like a bitter bunch. But, you know, they are stuck eating grass all day and milked early in the morning. I guess I can’t blame them for being bitter.
Good points!! Thanks.
I love that so many of your photos are of real life, from a different perspective. Never thought cows could be beautiful or approachable…but that group shot of them is adorable. 🙂
Thanks. 🙂 Glad you like my cow photos. :
May be you have that special bovine magnetism. 🙂
David, I think I do. 😉
Maybe they are following you because you have the answers. Animals go by instinct.
maybe… but if I have the answers, they are lost somewhere up in my head. 🙂
Seems that there was a “mooooooooo!~” all around 😀
yes this is true! Thanks Alex. 🙂
Beautiful cows! And a lovely landscape too.
Another cow? Sweet! They’re actually cuter when they’re not between two buns or sitting beside some mash. I guess it’s gonna be veggie burgers for me from now on.
🙂 don’t let them hear you say that. The cow mafia is real.
i’m not a very big fan of cows. On mornings when i go home from work and i commute instead of taking my car, i end up calling my husband to rescue me from cows blocking my path home. LOL, but these photos you took of them were great.
cows in the road? Where do you live?
in a country where the cows roam freely, the philippines 🙂 don’t take me wrong that’s part of the charm of the country. I’m just scared of them lol
I’ve been to Cavite near Manila. I didn’t see many cows there. 🙂
Wow! Really? Cavite is in Luzon im inthe visayas particularly in Negros Oriental. 🙂
Yes, my parents lived there for a while. They were missionaries there. In fact, they still go to Manila yearly. They rent a house. It’s not in Cavite, it’s near the air force base.
The photos are all great this week, Seth, and the colors cheer a gray northwest day. But what I really love are the cows. My Flowered Cow would fit right in with them. And I like knowing the cows might be asking all the same questions we ask. The questions sound profound coming from a cow. Thanks for the cheer.
Molly, welcome. Glad you like my cow friends.
