I'd posted about cows on the other blog, which reminded me about these pictures taken on my way back from early school. This is cow heaven. They are rice fields which are not being cultivated and full of succulent grass. Every morning a number of cows are brought down here. It's an idyllic setting. The best days for the cows are when there's a mild sunshine. The cows wade through the water, eating as much as they want. There are usually around 2 to 3 mynahs riding on their backs, probably to catch the insects that fly up when the cows eat. They don't seem to be pecking the cows. So they can't be there for the mites on them. The occasional cow that can be watched up close looks truly blissful. Took the pictures on two different days.
