e-i-e-i-o

We've always lived near ranches and farms here in Texas, but since moving out of our house and further into the urban areas of Austin, we've come across even more unexpected wild life. Deer regularly dart out in front of our car. Turkeys, llamas, peacocks, and always a variety of cattle/cows/bulls are near by.

I'm not much of a country girl, but I've taken to photogaphing them a lot lately. My kids love to stop and visit for a bit while I snap away, admiring the beauty and simplicity in their stillness and environment (the animals, not my children :).

Very nice. My favorite is the first one with the windmill. I like the way you tweaked the colors.

I love your photos.
We live on a wooded acre in the foothills and are frequently visited by deer and quail. I too love the serenity they add to our otherwise chaotic surroundings.

Seriously, though -- Don't peacocks make the most annoying calls? It sounds like they're shouting "rape, rape!" Lovely to look at, horrible to hear. :)
