great detail, but I'm thinking maybe it's more than I wanted to know smile..... this is a cow?
Ray: A cow...very pretty, don't you think? [grin]

I always thought you were a little nosey Ray!... Love the image. mal
Ray: She is a pleasant cow...just gets a little uppity if you put yourself between her and her calf. Thanks, Mal.
Very nice close up!

What a good idea.
Ray: She was a very obliging model.

Up close and personal....tongue
God your really getting up my nosetongue
Great capture Ray.
Ray: Cows are very personable critters...they would probably make good house pets if you could find a way to house-train them. [grin]

So glad you chose to publish this photograph rather than the one two seconds later after the sneeze!

This works so well, Ray. The detail is incredible
Ray: Thanks, Paul.
I can imagine what peril a full-powered cow-sneeze would present for my lens. [grin]
Wet nose healthy cow?
Ray: Yes...I think that rule-of-thumb works for cows as well as dogs.
You are very knowledgeable, Nigel. [grin]
lol! I love it, Ray! Not you usual `close-up` but still fascinating. Looking forward to seeing what else I have missed. (:o)
Ray: Thank you for your kind remark, Rosalyn.
I'm with Paul, prefer the nose to the sneeze that must have followed once the little fly reached its destination. :o) doesn't look like a cow to me, though
Ray: [grin]
She is a cow. Her role at the farm is to produce a calf every 2 years, in return for board and lodging.
Is this a Thai sex worker too?
Ray: [Almost] all things are possible in amazing Thailand, Mary. [grin]
Actually, though, she tends to eat flowers rather than pollinate them.

I have heard from the horses mouth but not from the cow lol
Ray: I am sure she is a very wise cow, Vintage.
Once she said the magic word "moo" to me...I am still working on possible interpretations. [grin]

Tack sharp and quite inviting. I like this original shot, Ray!
Ray: Thanks, Martin.
Up-country in Thailand, many rice farmers have just 2 or 3 cattle which are almost like family is not difficult to get close and make shots like this.

WOW.....I would NOT want that in my that a boogie or a fly in the right nostril tonguetongue......
Love it Ray.....a smile on my face.
Ray: Ha Ha!
I think a cow nuzzle might be more like a bath.
That is a little beetle in its nostril...a couple of seconds after this shot, the cow's tongue removed the little bug.

I have just seen the nose of a tiger and now are confronted with a bovine version.

Just chase the fly before you kiss this beauty smile Crazy farang.
Ray: This cow is a bit of a "character", Louis. She is very accustomed to people. She has a 6 month old calf, and gets quite agitated if you put yourself in between them.
Love the shot and you didi it without any protecting glass like I did.
Ray: Ha Ha! The only danger is that this friendly, placid cow might lick the lens.

I wonder, did the fly make it sneeze? wink
Ray: No...she removed that little orange beetle with her long tongue just a few seconds after I took this shot.
