Cattle in a pasture

Although the cattle chute shown during the last few days is no longer in use, that does not mean that cattle ranching no longer occurs in the area. This pasture was close to the location of the cattle chute that I showed during the past few days.

Cattle ranching is still a major part of the economic and cultural life of Guanacaste, the northwest region of Costa Rica where Tamarindo is located.

On our Viva la Voyage travel photo site this week we are showing photos from a recent visit of mine to the Hotel Del Coronado in Coronado, California. Come take a look at the Victorian charm and ideal beach weather.

Are cattle startled by iguana? Say, for instance, they were still using that chute with its current tenant, what would happen?

Brattcat,
i don't think cattle would be bothered by iguana. I have not observed cattle and iguana interact with each other, however it seems to me that cattle must see iguanas up in the trees around their pastures or on the ground regularly.

In fact, there were several iguanas that my son photographed right beside the road when I stopped to take the photo that I am showing today. They were on the shoulder of the road, outside of the pasture, so I did not see them with the cattle.

I love these cows with their big floppy ears.

That one cow looks like he is very interested in what you are doing! He is staring right at you. My grandfather and his brother were both cattle ranchers here in Florida, so this is an interesting subject to me.

You sure you did not take this photo in France? Looks like Burgundy, with Charolais cows

Great photo. The scenery holds very vibrant colors.
