Went out for a walk in a nearby nature's reserve about an hour by public transport. I'll post some other pictures of the day in the Natural landscape section.

A sheep and it's lamb:

PS: you can still see the umbellical cord :)


Another sheep and its lamb:

Hope you like em!

(constructive) criticism always welcome!

Hey Paukl,

like Thomas I think the first shot is very good. You captured that moment well.

For the second one: let's just say that I can't point any fingers, because I recently posted a picture on my own dog, showing it's derriere.

Them lambs are sure cute though!

Cheers :-)

Thanks for the kind replies :) I really like #1 the best myself too. I initially only turned it into black and white to conceal those plastic thingies they have in their ears, but I do think it adds something to the picture as well...

Whoa, I've just seen the EXIF data on the first one: 300mm on a four-thirds being equivalent to 600mm F/5.6 :shock:
At 1/200sec, handheld I assume :shock:
Nice demonstration of the Oly-power :idea:

True, I'm very impressed with the image stabilisation of my little buddy. This picture was taken lying down though, so my elbows were supported by the ground. That helps too ;)

I love that first picture Paukl, the moment is felt, very nice.

as for the rogersjt, nice pics of the newbies, I do have a weak stomach, not a hunter, or a raiser, wow :?

Great pics Paukl! I really like the first one. I think the second would look better if the lamb was alone but I guess that can't be helped.
