El Toro


I went for a short cycle ride on Friday which was an overcast day.  I nearly always carry a camera, just in case.  Happened upon this little character, all alone in a rather large field.

I might normally frame the picture to be much tighter on the animal but I was taken by the fact his ear tag seemed to be a similar colour to the rapeseed crop which was starting to flower in the distance.

As I continued on my way, along the disused rail track, I noticed the typical evidence of the passage of a cow and eventually found a field containing a larger number of cows on the opposite side of the track.  My guess is the youngster managed to get out of that field, wandered down the track and either found himself, or was driven, into his new field.Calfs_MG_2007
