Lambing

There was a small farm attached to the Lost Gardens of Heligan, including a field full of ewes and new-born lambs - very new-born lambs. We were lucky enough to find ourselves close to a fence where, about 10 yards away, a ewe had just started to give birth. The 300mm lens was a little bit long for the purpose, and some of the images are rather "up-close and personal" as a result! Nevertheless, it was a fabulous thing to watch as it happened so quickly and with absolutely no fuss (less than 10 minutes from the first picture to the last, based on the EXIF data).
