Skywatch Friday No. 61: Flying-Cow Ranch

Grace wanted to take me to take some photographs of butterflies. From the internet, I found this place called "Flying-Cow Ranch". The "Flying" actually refers to the butterfly walk and greenhouse in the ranch. It took us two-hour drive to get there. It was a very hot sunny day.

What really surprised us was the landscape of the place. It is located in a kind of valley. The landscape does not look like what we have ever seen in Taiwan.

It has a distinct European flavor, almost looks like an Alpine meadow of Swiss Mountain.

We have a lot of rice field in Taiwan, but rarely any grazing field for cow or sheep. This image almost looks like it is from Africa.

The farm really DOES look it could be in the Alps!

Oh, how wonderful! I never would have guessed that those were pictures of Taiwan. Beautiful shots. I love the colors of the first photo. The composition just draws you in.

Fascinating - friends of mine have visited Taiwan and returned with beautiful mountain photos (but none of flying cows, :-) ) There seems to be a lot of different terrain in a small country!

I've never been to Taiwan or any part of Asia, but this is not what I would expect to find there, either. It's very pretty. Love your first photo.

The last photo reminds me of when we were in Yangshuo, Guangxi, and there were waterbuffalo in the river - my friend thought they were bears!

A very peaceful scene and landscapes, a very pretty area. I hope you spotted lots of butterflies too.
