Belgium, undated: After driving past this scene, Stars and Stripes photographer Gus Schuettler realized that he was about to miss a great shot, so he went back and focused in on the bovine guardian of the trees. Schuettler, who died October 2, 2012 in Florida, counted this photo as one of his favorites among the thousands he took in an award-winning career that stretched from the 1950s through the Gulf War.
