Black & white calf

Most of the land was devoted to wheat, with a fair amount of beans, but there were a few pastures with livestock.

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at It is gone now.

I misread 'beans' as 'bears' in an early-morning moment here but this makes a lovely peaceful image.

Hopefully, the parent is somewhere nearby. The little ones would be a safer feeling.

@Jypyä Pop: He's old enough to graze on his own, so he doesn't need momma by his side. I didn't see any indication of dairy operations, so I assume this was hamburger on the hoof.

I like the bland colors around the calf. He certainly has given you attention. I like this shot.

Ok. The guy seems to somehow avoid the thought that I imagined it to need their mother.
