"Ask now the beast and they shall teach thee....or speak to the earth and it shall teach thee...Job 11: 7-8"

A Heifer bent down to fetch
Some purple crown vetch
And clusters of white yarrow
When a beast speaks to the earth,
It does not look for sorrow
But seeks the value of its worth!

I accidentally got too much clipped off the the upper section of the heifer's back when my camera moved as I shot the picture so I decided to crop the picture to draw more attention to the front side to show how the heifer bent down to the wildflowers. This was shot 200 yards from where I was standing from the fence line of our neighbors pasture. ...I didn't have my tripod along in the woods with me but it would have helped to have held the camera steady from that distance after 7:00 at night

Thank you so much to the JPG Staff for the spotlight on 7/15/2019...It is much appreciated!!!
