South Taranaki, New Zealand, 2004: Cows are bizarre looking creatures when you take a closer look-  particularly in Taranaki where they are literally part of the landscape… Cows/cattle are the most common species of the genus Bos. The name cattle was borrowed from the old French word catel, meaning ‘moveable personal property’. The term is closely related to the word chattel (personal moveable items) and capital (in the economic sense).  Canon EOS A2E/28-105/Kodak Tri X
