Photographer's Note

This is a simple and very usual image showing cattle united to face a strange people that invaded their area. They were far from me but my zoom got them. In the background you can see some old araucarias. In the lower area of this photo we can see pasture and some orange flowers, that plant is called "Living-room's captain or milker" but it has another names. It is a very usual plant in pastures and if an animal eat its leaves it will be die in few time. Animals know this but sometimes they can eat them by mistake and accidents aren't rare.

Aqui vemos uma vista do gado reunido e encarando o invasor de sua rea. Eles estavam bem distantes de mim mas o meu zoom os alcanou. Vemos ao fundo algumas velhas araucrias. No primeiro plano vemos a pastagem e no meio dela algumas flores alaranjadas. Estas plantas so conhecidas como "capito de sala ou leiteiro" mas possuem outros nomes tambm. uma planta extremamente venenosa e o gado sabe disso e a evita, mas s vezes ao comer o capim eles ingerem alguma folha por engano e acidentes deste tipo no so raros.
