Grab Shot

While driving home from a trip to west Texas, we passed a pond by the road with many longhorn cattle drinking with perfect reflections in the water. We couldn't stop there on the highway, so went over a hill to the first place we could turn around to go back for a photo. We got there to see all the longhorns in a line running as fast as they could go into the next pasture. I jumped out and ran up to the fence. The stragglers had slowed down to graze and this last one looked up for a quick grab photo. So much for my dream shot of longhorns reflected in the pond!

Unfortunate about not getting the reflections, but how fortunate to get the longhorn to stop and pose for you! That is one huge rack!

It never turns out how we envision it! But this is a fabulous image of this longhorn. I don't see how they can get through the brush without those horns getting stuck on something. Plus it must be some kind of balancing act just carrying them around all of the time!
