The lambs were born 8 days ago on Roz's brother's property (next door). They're twins and growing very fast.

Beautiful shot! Mama looks so proud of them, but she's certainly keeping her eye on you!

That look on momma is priceless. I wonder if she's annoyed with the young ones or just doesn't want her picture taken?

That's one proud mama, I sure wouldn't want to mess with her! I love the motion of the tail on the one, and the little one kneeling under mom is priceless!

The lambs are looking a bit shaky still. The ewe is keeping her eyes on the photographer it seems. I like the perspective of the sheep playing such an important role in the photograph.

For some reason I find this hilarious. i think it is the look on the sheep's face that I find funny. It is as if she is disgusted or maybe bored with standing there waiting on her children to feed. Great texture you captured on the sheep's wool.

Lovely shot of the twins. I love to see the new born lambs running around. Mum looks quite laid back considering you must have been quite close.

Awwwwwwww! Wonderful texture, I can almost feel her wool in my hands. I love how you caught the one baby suckling, such a beautiful moment in life.

We've been hearing a lot about you and your family for a while now through roz's pics. It'll be nice to get to know you through your own photos. I like this one very much. The texture in the sheep's fleece picks up the texture in the trees and grass nicely. Well composed.

I like those little ones (and mom is also nice). Reminds me of long walks to the country (have to do that again). Strange animals! Always running away when you come closer and coming closer when you walk away. You made this from a nice position!
