Am really jealous of the herd photos of Sue Llewelyn at her challenge, here. I wish I was the one who took those pictures, meaning I wish I was there!
I once had a chance to take a photo like that in the mountains of Karatoula in the Peloponnese. My boss’s daughter, Effie, told me that I should watch out for the old lady shepherd because at 6:00 pm she always herd her goats home and I wouldn’t miss them as the goats had bells hanging in their necks. I fell asleep; by the time I woke up all I could hear was the fading sound of the bells as they went down the mountainside.
Well anyway to answer her challenge, here’s my herd of bovines taken during my travel in Ireland. I dreamt of this, for an opportunity to take a picture of animals causing traffic in Ireland. Isn’t that silly? Well, I was expecting, that’s exactly how I would picture it to be and when it happened, I immediately jumped out of the car and clicked away. I didn’t care what the other motorists thought about me. The Irish are nothing but friendly and hospitable people even when we ourselves (with my friends getting our pictures taken in a one-way lane road) were causing the traffic.
Pardon the behinds and udders.
