A Photo a Week Challenge: Livestock

livestock_nmp

I only seem to photograph animals while on vacation. Hawaii is a bit overrun with hei heis (aka chickens). I’m not sure why they call them hei hei, but they were EVERYWHERE! The lovely rooster was at a plantation where we enjoyed a delicious and festive luau. He was moving so quickly, he’s not quite in focus, but the colors of his feathers are still beautiful.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO OF LIVESTOCK.

Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ and “Photo a Week” tags.
  3. Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Livestock

Highlander cow

While visiting Scotland, we really wanted to meet some highland cows (or as my sister calls them, “heelund coos”). And did we ever meet them. Our first encounter was with a small group of cows on the single lane track road we had to take to one of our hotels. There was a rather large cow standing in the middle of a bridge we had to cross. Not knowing if the cows are aggressive (they aren’t) or if this one would take it in her head to use her horns against the car (she didn’t), we proceeded with great caution. As we inched closer, she obligingly, but very slowly, moved out of our way. Later, we met up with a couple of heelunders near some standing stones (this picture is of one of them), and we soon had plenty of pictures of these beautiful animals.
