This is the start of a countdown of the 10 favourite animals and birds that we recently saw in Iceland.
Cows may seem a strange choice, but we first noticed these pretty cows because someone else had already stopped to take a picture of them. Icelandic cattle are a unique breed that come in many interesting colours and patterns. Some of this group were wearing bags on their udders and their harnesses were also quite eye-catching. They live near Skógarfoss and as we turned the car around and drove past two minutes later, they had already gone quite a lot further away from the road to get their food.
