I have always enjoyed taking pictures of our herd. Looking through my lens, I witness the changing of the seasons, from lush, green pastures to snowy, white blankets. I watch our herd grow and flourish. And on the very special occasion, I watch a new life come into this world. It probably comes as no surprise, therefore, that my very favorite season to photograph is what I like to call the calving and baby calf season!
During one of my recent herd checks (we have two cows due to calve any day now), I discovered a good portion of our 15 baby calves curled up in a pocket of tall grass with their eyes squeezed shut, sleeping away the afternoon. I tiptoed around and captured as many images as I could of this peaceful time. It is hard to believe that just a month and a half ago we were anxiously awaiting the start of the calving season. Oh how time flies on the farm!
