Camera-Critters #141


I wanted to wait until I actually had the proof in my hands. So, I kept my excitement to myself until now, because now, I have the proof in my hands. The below photo was taken after the 2007 ice storm in Missouri. The below photo is also published this January/February issue of GRIT magazine. The below photo is my very first paid publication! I didn't get much, and the photo is very small and amongst other readers' photos, but it's still my first paid publication. Here's hoping and praying for many more, since that is my dream afterall.

And, before you make any jokes, let me tell ya that you aren't gonna get any breast milk outta this critter, as he's a Charolais bull, who was standing watch while the Angus cows ate hay in the pasture behind him. Watching out for his girls is what he was doing. ;-)

Mega congratulations, Misty! And it's easy to see why the publication would have chosen this pic too as it is really a very good one. You have a great eye for getting some wonderful animal photos, my friend. May not have paid all that much but it was published and the Grit -well that's a really well-known publication too not just some little local rag. (Although I got really excited when my first piece was printed in our local rag so I can relate fully to your excitement.)
