Animal life in the Alps

Hey friends, I'm still in Italy, but only 'til the end of the week! I had a little time to get a few photos up, so thus begins the parade of pictures from the last month. Our first week in Europe was spent in the Lauterbrunnen Valley. Switzerland was beautiful. I can't even describe it. The charming little villages and the magnificence of the alps  on a sunny day had my shutter finger sore. So, to start things off, here is a taste of the not so wild, wildlife that I happened to see in Switzerland.

 This is hands down the most majestic cow I have ever seen in my life.

These of course are not real animals, but I found them to be hilarious. I think they were covered in rabbit fur to make them soft...creepy...
