Motherhood

 

Motherhood has a very humanizing effect.  Everything gets reduced to essentials.

Lovely and pastoral. Good one for Mother's Day. smile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Larry. It's almost Father's Day, too, so in between the two, I figured I wasn't too late. But then, as Astrid says, every day is Mothers Day. smile

Love the shaggie hair look of mum
Ginnie Hart: I know, Vintage. She makes me laugh every time I look at her. Every mother has that right to shaggy hair! grin

HAPPY BIRTHAY!
Oh my Ginnie... this is such a lovely natural shot. The horns & hairdo are fab. : )
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Jacquelyn. We were all transfixed by this wee family of three that day. So sweet. smile

The moment we spotted these Highlanders we were all exited, the 'blond' stole the show wink
Wonderful picture, love the DOF.
It was the perfect day in the forest.
Ginnie Hart: I'll never forget it, MLMA. I still smile to think about you and the others who went out into the field to get closer to this mama and how she then started to protect her wee ones. You did keep your distance, thankfully. I bet she really can use her horns to her advantage when she needs to. smile Bedankt.

I love cattle that have their horns intact. Nice shot

Delightful little family group Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too, Brian. smile Thanks.
I just want to cuddle them! They are not venturing far from Mum smile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Linda. At that particular point there were 3 or 4 photographers daring to go out into the field with them to get closer. Astrid was one of them but she stayed her distance. Wouldn't want to mess with THOSE horns! smile
Sooo cute !
Ginnie Hart: I know, Olivier. smile Merci.
