I do not know what it is hihi...
I thought an elephant, but she is too small and she has to thin legs(and too young to give milk)
A donkey can not,he has too big legs ;(
And I can not crib from other comments LOL
Otherwise, I wait until morning.
But I do not like cheating.
I can only say NICE SHOT :))
But you make it exciting.
I'm curious what other blog readers say about it.
I really do not now ;)
(It is of course an elephant and I am the only one who doubts) HEHE

It is a buffalo.

Momstart said...

Is that a goat? It really is hard to tell what kind of animal that is

That's India! It's nice to see someone cutting out all the middlemen, thought the dairy and all the machinery, the truckers, the packaging, the retail outlets. It's a great Earth day image!

Robin said...

I knew it couldn't possibly be an elephant, but it sure did look like it at first. Fun capture.

this is a wonderful shot! and yes, this photo can be a good image for "what is it?"... i was thinking first of an elephant, but as anya said, the legs are too thin...

and i don't know if it's easier to milk a buffalo or a cow, but your photo makes milking look like child's play:)...

Not only a great composition, but captures the naturally-occurring artistic distribution of color and monochrome! Really brilliant shot!

Erin @ Furry Murray said...

A buffalo huh? I wondered Wednesday when I lurked and didn't leave a comment. :) I've only milked Holsteins and Jerseys. Very interesting shot!

Lilli & Nevada said...

someone has some tough hands after milking what ever the critter is.

Ribbon said...

Another great shot.
I believe that you can make great cheese from buffalo milk. Not that I've had any. Just been told that.

best wishes Ribbon

Jeevan said...

what a shot! it brings back memories, because my grandpa had many bulls and have seen so many time while he milk.
