OK, I lied...

How many cows?
It's black and white because the cows are, and as David Hockney says - photography doesn't do greens well...

I was using a big heavy zoom, too. In the interests of research, of course. It's actually not that heavy and quite versatile. But would a lighter lens with a greater zoom range be any worse? I didn't need to use it wide open.

Continuing in the 'do as I say not as I do' frame of mind,  I cropped the shot below. Well, rules are made to be broken. Especially if they're your own rules!

Cows make great subjects. They're quite sculptural creatures that form themselves into interesting shapes, and their markings can be very graphic.
