Living in the Flint Hills of Kansas


Just a photo of the transient cattle that live across the road from us.  They arrive shortly after the prairie fires are over.  The pastures turn to a brilliant green within a few days after they have been blackened by fire.  The cattle are shipped in from other places to spend their lazy summer days getting fat on the natural tall grass ecosystem.  And then.....well fall arrives......and they are gathered up and shipped out to their next destination which might be your grocery store.
