Great picture as always Ghalia.However, the Maha is not a wild cow, it's an antelope species of the the genus Oryx. There are 4 subspecies, 3 of which come from Africa and the fourth resides in Arabia. This last one is what we have in Syria (The Arabian Oryx).

I really wished to take a closer shot, but they were running away every time I step closer!Abu Fares, I asked the man working there about them, he was kinda of something engineer and he assured to me that they were cows and not antelope, I even checked it in an Arabic/Arabic dictionary and it meant wild cows. The Oryx is considered from bovine family I guess!However, remember that verse from the 8th grade?عيون المها بين الرصافة والجسر جلبن الهوى من حيث أدري ولا أدريIt was about cows in shar7 el mufradat! Karin & Yazan, thank you for your lovely comments.
