Contrasts

For the most part the recent weather here has been amazing even my rhubarb has plucked up courage and put in an appearance - just. But not all days are blue sky and sunshine. Last week we walked to Vaich Dam on the Strathvaich Estate. Winter still holds on in places. Highland Cattle are generally quite timid and shy - but their large size and horns make us quite wary when we walk by. I had a similar hair style to this once. Just washed it and shook my head about until dry. The end result looked very much like this - though without the horns!

A good look round.
Unless they have calves Highland cattle are a gentle and friendly beast.

I'm a great respecter of cattle having had a number of encounters.

Amazing icy loch!
And I too am wary when walking by cattle.

I have an invitation to take photos of the Douglas Fold at The Hirsel - hopefully there will be calves!
As always, lovely photos!!

Those cattle look a little intimidating. Waiting for some signs of spring here.
