this is one of those photos kind of "unique", you were really lucky to see this moment and have your camera, and we´re happy you had "the eye", this is really GREAT. Su, Portugal

Thanks everyone for the kind words.

Su, you're right this was a kind of unique moment - I pass this farm every time I drive into the office and it's never looked quite like this before or since. I do make a point of carrying my camera (almost) everywhere, just in case there's a situation like this.
