For a few weeks now we had been feeding and observing this heavily pregnant village street cow, who about a week ago suddenly disappeared into the forest and became untraceable, even as we feared the worst. But to our pleasant surprise, she finally returned yesterday with her new-born stumbling and tottering alongside. The cow being very protective, it was quite difficult to approach the calf; forget petting it! In my enthusiasm to click pictures, I even managed to get head-butted by the vigilant mother – to be honest, she had served me two fair warnings!

If ever you would ask me my definition of innocence, I would simply ask you to come along and behold this clueless, dewy-eyed, faultless, guileless, harmless, inoffensive, naive, pure, raw, unaffected, unblemished, unguarded, wide-eyed, week-old calf!

No more words; the pictures suffice…

  1. That was such a noble deed to feed her!
    Ah! I hope you weren’t hurt much while clicking the pictures because the blow after two warnings from a protective mother can be dangerous 😅

    The pictures are as usual just enchanting!!!!❤❤❤

    PS: Are you a professional photographer because the way you click them, they just speak of perfection!

    1. Thank you, Bhavya, for your concern – I guess I deserved it, and was probably asking for it with such inquisitiveness! 😅

      I am just another self-taught photographer and I am still learning! I’ve been at it for over a decade, and the practice does help a little. And seeking my frame to tell a story keeps me going. Thanks once again for your compliments. 🙂
