This brief video from my Nevada and Mojave trip features a rustic setting near the California/Nevada state line. A small corral, a lonely windmill, a few cattle, and lots of wide open space - it could pass for a scene from another era:

As an equestrian, I've flown my Mavic near horses quite a bit with little or no reaction.  I have heard, however, that cows seem to really fear drones.  Did you experience anything like that?

They must have been affected.  They were all walking backwards in that opening scene!

The cows didn't seem to pay it any attention. Still, I tried to avoid getting too low over them, just in case.

Heheh! When I first reversed that clip, I thought they were all standing still. Later I realized a couple of them were walking a bit, but the clip worked so much better in reverse I just kept it that way.

I don't remember the specific settings. I did use a ND-8 polarized filter. I also did a little post-processing in Final Cut Pro, mainly just brightening it up a bit.
