Photo tips – Have some patience

When shooting cows just have some patience and sit still in place where they can see you from a safe distance. Eventually they will come to you and as long as you do not move very quickly or make a lot of noise they will get closer and closer. Their curiosity always win over being scared of you. Oh and by the way, if you sit there to long they will start to eat on your clothes, cameras etc.

The photo is taken with an on camera speedlite flash at maximum power to compensate for the sun.
