A dairy cow examined my camera as I photographed it, not far from the Tillamook cheese factory. In fact, an entire herd of cows crowded forward, held back from us only by the fence around their pasture. I've had cows check me out before, from safe distances. This one eventually stuck it's nose against my camera lens!
A few minutes before, I was at the wheel of the lead van, and I drove right by the cows in their beautiful green pasture. The sun had just come out after a few minutes of hard rain, and I decided to turn around to check out the cows. I'm glad I did. I photographed with just my wide angle lens and I think this is the best shot of a cow I've made.
