The shot is great.
It reminds me of a moment in the film How to Train a Dragon when the protagonist touches the dragon for the first time.
I love the subtle trust that must be involved in something like this.
Conspiracy theorist everywhere. People why can't you just be happy to see the picture? Why you have to dig deep into all possible conspiracy theories?
hello ralph, meghan and staff.. i was glancing back at the other photos of the past couple of weeks...what happend to the comments?
I believe this photo was set up using some type of food to attract the "young bovine". Still a nice photo...
@Shailesh Sharma For the same reason the photographer finds it necessary to come up with a tear jerking and obviously ridiculous caption to the photo, rather than just letting the photo (which I've said is very nice) speak for itself. Give us a location and perhaps info on equipment/technique etc. and stop trying to delve into the inner most feelings of a cow.
@water birdthank you for your question. We've completely re-architected, rewritten, and are employing brand new technologies to power things like sign-in, profiles, and commenting. To that end we've had to archive past comments. We understand it may take some time to get used to these changes, but we're excited to bring you these new technologies and experiences. For instance, in the coming weeks we'll be releasing the ability to receive notifications when someone replies or likes your comment letting you know when other members are interacting with you. We appreciate your patience and feedback during this time. There is much more ahead.
@Jon Prochovnick i would imagine that perhaps the bovine is attracted by the salt of the persperation.
just as my neighbours cat is also sometimes espiecially in the hot summer. everyone thinks she is so affectionate, when she's really just trying to add some minerals to her diet :-) But this is a picture perfect capture, and composition... compliments to the photographer!.
