Highland Cattle

I actually came across these impressive Highland cattle grazing lazily in a field of rough pasture on the edge of one of Norfolk's many nature reserves. The barn owls there had won their game of hide and seek that morning, so I gave up. I negotiated a barbed wire fence and managed to get within around 20 metres of the cattle before they started to become just a little twitchy. Close enough, though, to capture the closer animal's fabulous hair-do. Truly gentle giants with a rather stately demeanour.
