Many thanks to Pat for hosting this week. A great theme, as I love rural scenes. Hope to see lots of pastoral shots this week!!
1) This one always makes me smile, as I caught them by surprise. The one at the front was in the middle of munching a mouthful of grass.
2) A field of buttercups...what could be more rural than that?
3) These Highland cattle looked really contented in their rural setting on a warm summer day.
4) A meadow full of puff-balls at Colby Woodland, Pembrokeshire, Wales.
