A Brief Encounter in the Countryside
We've Got Company!
“What’s that coming down the hill - and there is 1-2-3-4 of them?”
“Aaaaah that Son - is tourists” Excellent, I knew this was going to be a good day”
“Why are you happy about tourists Dad? - they’re getting closer, should we run away, are you sure it’s ok Dad?”
“Settle down Son, now we haven’t got much time, how do I look?”
“Well, you look like Dad!”
“Is that bit of hair sticking up on top between my horns again?”
“Looks fine Dad”
“Any bits of green between my teeth?”
“Teeth are looking good Dad, what’s going on?”
“Now there isn’t much time, they’re getting closer”
“Look Dad, that one, she looks nice and she’s smiling, she’s getting something out of her bag”
“Good, quick Son, come round here”
“What for, Dad?”
“I want to make sure they get my good side this time”
“They’ve stopped Dad and she’s holding that box thing up”
“Come on Son, closer move in nice and close, now when I say ‘cheese’ - smile - wait, wait, wait - CHEESE!”
“Looks like they’re going, Dad”
“Shame - I was hoping they’d do some close-ups, no one ever wants to do close ups……”
I only ended up with one photo, it was taken in a bit of a hurry, so it’s not the best I have ever taken.
As I got closer and got my camera ready, the big one with the horns started showing his teeth (which I didn’t think was a good sign).
Then, they started getting closer together I think the big one was a bit protective of the little guy. It really looked like he might charge at us.
But the scariest bit was when they both snarled at me, those teeth were huge!
I took the photo a bit quick…and decided to make a hasty retreat. Even the cute little guy looked scary; shame, it would have been nice to have had a ‘close-up’ photo...!
