Spring

I know it's just a cow, but... a cow at Oeiras??? I've found this friend eating green weed near the railroad; no idea where she comes from or to whom she belongs, but this surely is an unexpected sight around here! :-)

I think that's funny ... that a cow should be such a surprise in any season. I like the shot.

Maybe you have a family of cows mooving into town.

Cows are an everyday site here! Aren't they cute?! I lvoe the way you photographed her :)

Haha, and it's a great grassroots-level shot. Enjoy the cow while she's there. I haven't seen a cow in a long time.

Cows are nice animals. You have a perfect example of a cow-lick right in the middle of her forehead. If this cow were in Australia I would guess its breed to be Fresian. But I do not know about Portuguese cows. Either way, Fresian is from the Low Countries so you might have them too.
