Compare & Contrast with #Cows

Highland Cows in the Cotswolds

Having visited Scotland last year I have seen Highland Cattle in fields in their native country,  yet my own photos of Highland Cows are taken very near my home in the Cotswolds where they roam free over hundreds of acres of natural land during the summer months.Highland Cow PHoto by artist Diane YoungSometimes they just stand on the road and the traffic have to wait for them to move.  I love that these cows are extremely docile and have characterful & steadfast faces.
