CAMERA CRITTERS


We found these oxen at Mount Vernon, George Washington's home last Sunday.






Later downloads.  Gregg took two lovely shots which I have just seen after downloading from his camera.  I particularly liked the last one.

Those horns look like they could do some damage.

They are GORGEOUS - they look so like the Dexter cattle I used to have.

Kay said...

Wow! They are huge. I was reading about George Washington and what a great president he was.

Linda said...

Some contented cattle there - lovely to see.

Valerie said...

Lovely animals ... except for those horns. I wouldn't like to get too close, just in case

I always enjoy how relaxed bovine critters are most of the time.A fellow had pulled into a field with water the other day and they were all running.

They seem very at home in their historic location. We've seen oxen in an historic Utah park. They huge but gentle beasts.

They're beautiful animals!

Those are some horns. So lucky that they are renowned as placid animals. Thank you.

Oxen are such ancient strong looking animals.

e Joops said...

Wow, these are different from the ones that I saw in my childhood.

Cats or Dogs?
Your opinion will be greatly appreciated. Have a great Sunday!

I think both of you got wonderful pictures of the 'critters' at Mount Vernon. We really need to get back there.

Thank you for visiting friends.

These oxen are wonderful creatures! There aren't many of them left. I loved seeing them here, as I did when we were at Williamsburg, "in person" so to speak! :-) I love your new header, by the way (Mount Vernon I am guessing!) and the photo of the lone orange tree in Arlington was beautiful too.
