I was photographing bees in the freshly bloomed plum tree. When I went out to check on Daddy Owl, I got sidetracked by burros and bovine. Since I was doing macro-like shots of the bees, I decided “Moo Macros” were in order for the cows.

This burro found a tasty cottonwood branch.
That’s how you do the Bovine Tongue Tuck Tango.

Daddy Owl was looking out at the Sandias, but gave me a quick, “You’re bothering me, boy!” look.

I love the cows, bees, other pollinators and owl. Cows are well suited for nose cleaning. 🙂
And the donkey, too!
Love all the photos today. It was a great day for all the critters and blooms. Thanks for sharing them with us.
You got some great shots of the bee. And that last photo of the cows face is interesting. He looks curious.
Thanks, Drew. Cows are curious critters.
Hi Tim!! I finally logged into WordPress. I love your posts and photos. And I recognize these neighbors! Cheers and hope to see you soon on the ditch.
Most of them were hanging out in your field. Thanks, Sayre.
Amazing photography, Sir!
The second photo is very nice
I honestly don’t know which I love best, the bee on my(?) pear tree (such a beautiful shot!), moo makros, burros and bovine to the tongue pendulum (🤣😂)!!! All, I say made my grey day colorful and happy!
That would have been your pear tree if I got my trees right. No that’s the plum tree that blooms so early (I updated the tree’s name). It gets frozen every year. 2018 was the first and only year so far we the tree survived frosts and produced plums. The bovine tongue pendulum was a hoot to watch. Thanks, Marina.
I hope you get plums this year!
On that tongue pendulum… I bet it was!!!! 😉
Amazing shots, every single one.
Today, you seem to have the similar gorgeous surrounding as I have, except the owl, of course!:)
HI Martina. You have burros, bees and bovine? That’s great. All you need is an owl to complete your paradise.
Exactly!!:) Maybe you can give us one of yours:):)
Timothy,I am trying to send you one of our butterflies!
Best regards Martina
Hi Marina. the link gives me a 404 not found.
I‘m sorry, Timothy, this means that I am not capable to do it correctly!!🙁
I was looking forward to seeing your butterfiles. I saw a bee.
I‘ll try again🌾🦟🦅
unbenannt-4.jpg (excuse me Timothy, for disturbing you again! This is the last time I try and maybe it’s much easier than I thought!
Nice shots and above all, funny comments.
Thanks, picpholio. I’m happy you liked them.
Now this was a joyful, unexpected walk for my Saturday morning. Loved it!
Happy to give you a nice morning walk. Thanks, Frank.
love the bees today…nice collection..
Thanks, Chine Dream.
Had to smile at the tongue tango, Tim. What a unique variety of pictures today. The one of the bee loaded with honey is amazing. It’s a wonder he can even fly with that load of his. Have a great weekend!! xo
Thanks, Amy rose. All the bees were really loading on the pollen. They are probably running low on honey in there hives.
How fun is this post? Lovely shots, always. And fun ones, too. Love the closeups and that cow looks so gentle.
They are sweet cows. Thanks, Dale.
I’ve zero doubt
Tee-hee! I love the Moo Macros, Tim. And yes, Daddy Owl does look cranky. Hugs on the wing!
Thanks, Teagan. Daddy owl was enjoying the scenery and didn’t want to be bothered.
Those faces – I love those faces!!
Absolutely wonderful photography, Tim! I have never seen a blue native bee before, really cool!
We have a lot of native bees. They are so cool. Thanks, Tiffany.
Wow Tim, excellent clicks as usual. I usually see cats and birds and lovely skies here. But I’m surprised to find this fella out here. Did my barfi post inspire this 😉
The last pic is so cute….
Good question since we were discussing milk. There was probably subliminal barfi contirbuting to moo macros. Thanks, Ruelha.
LOL 😉 😉
How cute these animals are! And your pictures are, as usual, really great. You know how to show us the best of your environment. Thank you for that.
You are welcome, Flo. Thanks for dropping by.
Another great alliterative collection, Tim! That burro is too adorable.
Thanks, Mary Jo.
Daddy Owl is gorgeous!
Adore this post! The burro is so sweet!
Dog imitation is very well done.
AGM Dale says she hopes the eggs hatch on her birthday! I hope so, too.
I never really know when the eggs hatch because it’s several week after they hatch that the little ones start looking out on the world and all the silly humans gawking at them. Thanks, Resa.
Nice shots! Apparently the bees are getting active and the cows are getting “hammy” hmm, maybe that should be “beefy”.
Beefy is more like it. Thanks, Brian.
Wonderful pics Tim … that bee sure has been busy gathering pollen
Busy bees. Thanks, Julie.
