In contrast to Germany, cows in Ireland roam outside and they are quite a bit larger....

Irish cows treated as Scottish sheep... Quite a sight... :-)

I love the second, very amusing and scope for lots of cow thought balloons.

We just drove back from a horse riding place where Birgit went on a beach ride for 2h (highly recommended for horse riders...).  The cow was standing next to the sign and I got out to shoot that scene when it started to scratch its ear on the sign.

Scottish sheeps are usually running free, in meadows as on the roads, often racing ahead of your car to see who will win on narrow road near Fort William. Thus the analogy :-)

Yes, there is a bit of curvature there in the 1st foto!

The 2nd shot is quite nicely edited and looks even better when clicked up big. A fun capture, too. I would be tempted to crop in a lot on that shot just because the cow has such a cool, nonchalant expression and is such a lovely colour.
