Dinner Interrupted

animal heads bowed
friends graze the juicy green fields
in peaceful sunshine
until voyeurs toot their horn
interrupting dinnertime

This photo was taken near Corryong, North East Victoria. My friend and I got lost following our GPS up a fire track and we stumbled upon these beautiful beasts calmly grazing. I think the window/door of the car, frames them perfectly. But we definitely interrupted their dinner!
