WINNER, LOCAL: It’s fun to feed cows, as Rachel Grodsky of Raymore learned when she shot this photo in the Flint Hills. Rachel, 30, writes in an email that she has been learning photography for about two and a half years. She has taken classes at Kansas City Art Institute KCAI taught by Crick Camera owner Bill Thomas and continues to try and put her “own spin on things.” For this photo, Rachel says she was with some friends and one person in the group knew the cows’ owner, who let the group feed the bovines. “I saw how this one was sticking her tongue out to reach the pellets and thought it might look interesting with my fish eye lens,” Rachel writes. “I think I was a little too far away and the cow really had to reach to grab the pellet from my other hand. She actually ended up licking my lens, so I couldn’t use it the rest of the day. Luckily, it made a really fun photo!”
