Lamb--One Week Old

Posted by
Anita (West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States) on 12 March 2008 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

I took this while he was peeking around the side of him mom. We have let him and the 2 sheep out into the larger pasture. He follows his mom everywhere, and is as frisky as lambs are reputed to be.

Your lens is so gentle; every photo is taken with a sense of caring and appreciation, qualities that shine through your images like this one.

@GJC: Thank you so very much for your kind words. If "caring and appreciation" show in my photos, I am more than happy. I take photos of what I love.

Chris from South Jersey, United States

Wonderful shot - lots of wonderful detail and lighting. I showed my wife your lamb shot the other day and she loved it (and started asking me if we could get sheep!!).

@Chris: Thank you, Chris. I look forward to photos of your sheep-to-come! ;-)

Anita, such a beautiful shot. The detail you've captured, here, in his face and coat is terrific. Beautiful composition, as well.

You have a gift for getting the focus on your animal portraits that beautifully highlight the texture of fir and blend facial features with the rest of the shot.
