For a while tonight, I debated about the best presentation for this Texas Longhorn mama and her baby calf, but opted here for black-and-white. We see the world in color, of course, but at times it’s best to go with a gray, black and white approach. Don’t misunderstand. I love color photography, but sometimes monotone is better. Black and white has a unique ability to simplify when it’s needed. All that aside, I loved the way mama let her little one cuddle so close. When these were taken last evening, it was cloudy and well past sunset. At first, I just saw those big horns, but then there was baby, tucked well under those protective legs.
