I'll comment on this one.

Monster, why does the airport near you have an anti-aircraft battery set up? Seems kind of contrary to the whole point of airports.

That stone wall is very scenic. Lovely. That's why I voted for it. Classic.

The cattle guard picture captured the first time my kids had seen one of those. They were unimpressed when I explained it to them until I urged them to pretend they were cattle with pointy little feet, and they wanted to get to the other side.

I'm all about interpretation, so for this one I was split between the trenches, the wall and the cattle grid. The others were great pictures but didn't scream "boundary" at me.

The thing I've never understood is why that contraption doesn't just lead to a whole row of cattle with broken legs stuck in the slats. I guess they're smart enough to know they can't step on it and don't even try...

Cows are far smarter that folk give them credit for, they have a sense of humour too.

Cattle grids are far more common in the UK. They work a treat. For sheep too

Ever watch cows jump over the yellow line in the highway? I laugh till I cry every time I see that. And I don't know why.
