I hope you’re having an awesome Wednesday and that the coffee has warmed you well. I’ve been out in the pastures much of the past week as calving season has launched in a quick start. The calves are loving this crisp, cool weather. Here’s 30 seconds of joy with one. Happy Hump Day!

There’s nothing quite like being out in the summer pastures before it gets hot. If only this grass could be a little more green…
This cow is an easy keeper. Need more like her who hold their weight well in this drought.
This is one of the best pastures on the place right now. Resting for more than a month and didn’t stockpile much grass.
Searching for all the grass they can get before it really warms up
How about an actual Wordless Wednesday for once? Well, as close as I can get.
I start each Monday this summer in the pasture, taking photos of cows. Yep, it’s true. It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it. Can ya think of a better way to start the week? I sure can’t.
Now if only I can find a way to make it through HumpDays…
Boy, someone gave her a good black eye!

Sometimes a person just has to walk out of the office and break up the day. I’m pretty lucky to have some projects that take me out in the pasture this summer, and had an opportunity to catch this shot. A few posts ago, I wrote how I had no photos of me actually with the cows. Does this one count?
This photo now needs a caption. Can ya help me out?
I also had a chance to capture some other shots. Photographing cows while trying to get the best camera focus isn’t always an easy task. I’m not looking for the best photography with this project, just the clearest shots.

Every time I try to capture a tag, the cow moves….
Finally, one stood still for me
Here’s another one that wanted to get close and personal
If I can’t capture the tag, a brand will do
Corn appreciated a drink Sunday night
