This cow seemed to be enjoying the beautiful day in a field near Crested Butte, Colorado.

Showing such a beautiful animal in constraint in no way justifies the notion of happiness, or contentment.

... but the "dork" is right.

The photograph IS very nice - and billbinmei didn't complain about that. Just about the words. The same feeling came to me, when reading the words while watching the photo. There can also be beautiful photos of human prisoners... just stating that they look "content" (through the barb wire) would not be acceptable. Same for this cow... that's all. "Dorks" are the ones who CAN'T see truth - or the ones who just don't care. :(

Apparently, people have different ideas of contentment. For me, contentment is an inner peace and happiness that is not dependant upon any external conditions. That explains why you can find truly happy, contented people across all spectrums of society. Living in adverse conditions does not necessarily equate with misery and discontent. It depends upon the individual and their own personal outlook on life. Obviously, I was not able to speak to the cow or get inside it's head to ascertain his or her personal level of contentment. However, the cow had hundreds of acres of beautiful ranch land upon which to roam, a good number of cow companions and, yes, a fence to keep him safe from car traffic. As I looked upon this beautiful creature in such a gorgeous natural setting, I was impressed by the animal's calm demeanor and sense of inner peace. That's why I chose the title of "Contentment" for this photograph.

Maybe the stear is on the outside and the animal taking the picture is barbed in.

Good point, edmorris! Why do some folks jump to the negative conclusion that the fence is there to keep the animal IN? Perhaps the fence is there to keep people OUT.

Finally! A thought provoking comment. Thank you edmorris. Maybe this contented cow feels sympathy for all us animals on the outside looking in at her. A beautiful photo!

Fab photo & interesting comments. Whether the cow is feeling content or not this is a great metaphor for the fact that we humans can CHOOSE joy/peace/contentment in spite of our circumstances. Great sermon "fodder", to use a cow-type term.

Very very nice. Although the barbed wires are very distracting and mar the beauty of the beautiful one.

Never have i wanted to spend an afternoon with a cow, until now. Great picture!

Hint: cows aren't all that bright--there's a reason there haven't been any bovine enlightenment philosophers. Anyone who tries to judge animals based on human ways of thinking is an insufferably tard.
