This black and white beauty seemed especially disposed to being photographed. I told her how gorgeous she was, how pretty her picture would be. (Growing up on a cattle farm might have something to do with my talking to cows.) In response, she struck a pose.
She really worked it. As proof, after I snapped a few shots, praising her all the while, I called "Thank you!" At that, she turned away and began grazing. Obviously, she and the others in the herd are used to modeling.
"angel" on this mountain before. After the snow melts a little, she'll be visible in between the two peaks on the right, for the first time in the decade. Prior to the last snowfall, the first decent one of 2010, she was looking a bit too slim.
