Photo of the Day: Yellow Cow in India

Colorful-yellow-sacred-cow

Alas, our 2009 Dream Trip Contest ended on Friday. We'll announce who will win a $25,000 vacation to anywhere he or she chooses in our November issue. In the meantime, feast your eyes on this image--one of more than 19,000 contest entries:

Forgive us for invoking the cliché about the horse of a different color, but today's Photo of the Day has us thinking about animals of a less-than-natural palette.

"I spotted this woman guiding her colorful animal, decorated for a Hindu festival, along a road near Mysore, India," writes Dream Trip entrant rubenst in the Dream Trip entry "Woman with Yellow Cow". "I knew I wasn't dreaming when I subsequently saw pink lambs and goats."

"I wonder what happens to the dyed animals when it rains?"
