This image of a ewe and her newborn, was taken during the spring "lambing season" in Michigan.

Not sure where this image belongs (not pets, nor landscapes) so I'll park here until it's moved?

I recently had the opportunity to photograph a livestock (sheep / cattle) farm during peak season, The lambing season runs for about two (or so) intense weeks in May. Births start early around 4:30 - 6:00 am then the barns are humming again, around 10 -12:00 pm with a new cycle. Of course, nature doesn't watch a clock and as luck would have it, (for me) two ewe's gave birth, while I visited.
By the way, the wonderful lady that owns the farm is a widow who runs the operation with the help of her son.
The lambing season gallery has a variety of images of newborn lambs (hours and minutes old) as well as a couple of live births.

Yes indeed, the lambs all were quite hospitable and eager to meet the new human at the farm.
The gallery has additional images, showing the birth of a lamb, which, for many (non farmers) is probably a unique image.
This particular mom and babe, were curious to be sure...if you notice, both have cocked their heads the same, so maybe, they've modeled before;)

Lol .....I think it looks like a post card you would buy at the county fair.

Your name implies to have the same sickness as a good friend of mine!! How many Dodge's do you own?? Lol

Spot on observation... The image has been printed as a folded greeting card, for the family and their farm store. It really turned out nice.

As far as the RAM, they are my initials. My last name is often misspelled and mispronounced, so I've used my initials since high school.

I've owned two Fords, all my other vehicles (dozen or more) have been GM. I've not been bitten by the MoPar bug, though I also know several so afflicted:)
