Out here where I live lambs are born in December or early January. This means that if you head out with your camera in February and March you can get photographs of playful, joyful lbs gamboling through the fields and leaping up the hillsides.
I headed out on such a day to see what was out and about when I found this group of youngsters tearing through the fields while placid adults looked on. Sheep are sheepish and rather skittish so I was watching them from a distance, and using a 70-200mm lens to capture the action. (High Shutter speed was my priority on this day, as freezing the action was more important than a deep depth of field.)
I originally titled this image as “Air Lamb,” and while I still think of it that way, someone once pointed out the fact that it also looks like I was able to capture an image of the elusive and rare invisible sheep. Look closely, and you’ll see it, though it is more by inference than actually being able to see something that is invisible.
