    We've got dogs and cats covered, but how about the rest of the animal kingdom?

    Here's one to start things off. This contented cow was chewing her cud at a small country fair in Sheffield, Massachusetts.

    Despite what you may have heard, not a self-portrait . . . . X10.

    This one was taken on a very windy but sunny day while testing the X-E1 with 18-55mm lens a few weeks ago.

    Peter, I love, love love your windswept friend who won't let a little breeze interfere with a good snack! I'm trying to remember what breed he or she is?

    Dave, now that's the kind of "on the beat" style I'd like if I were an officer of the law.:cloud-9-039:

    EBC Wilson, I've never ever thought of you as a goat - but I am very fond of goats...and this one looks like a Nubian, which is one of my favorites.:th_salute:

    Bandrews, no apologies needed for your herd - one of the reasons I hanker after an iPad is for its simplicity of editing and uploading. Very nice!

    Thanks for your kind words. I think it is a Scottish Highlander. I may be wrong though. I also commented to your comment at Flickr and included some other photos, also of wild horses. These were taken with the D800E (with an old 70-210 lens) so I can't add them here.

    Similar to Peter's Calloway Cattle, here's a Scottish Highlander, on a small semi-natural island in one of the busiest riverways of Europe (the Meuse in Rotterdam). It's part of an experiment where I'm trying to create full-sized stitched panoramas (with shallow DOF if I want) using a single quick sweep in continuous drive mode to minimize subject movement between shots - more explanation at Experiment: high-speed version of Brenizer method

    Thanks Bart for mentioning the right name of the animal in my photo, which was also definitely a Scottish Highlander! I looked for the name combined with this area and the wrong name showed up! Must have be part of the same experiment as yours (I live a bit further up north).

    Nice photographic experiment too.

    I thought they had some kind of Scots background!:bravo-009: There's something very appealing about them. Perhaps it's that the remind me of giant stuffed animals...the cuddly kind. I think I've spotted some around my new neck of the woods up here in northwestern Connecticut.

    Very nice lighting, Bart!

    The saying 'never work with children or animals' came to mind when doing this shoot.

    A workmates 13 week old kitten would not sit still for longer than 1/2 a second! Despite this I did manage a few keepers, this being one of them.

    X-E1 and 35/1.4
