Photo A Week - Spring!

It's spring! Woo Hoo! I can't believe the difference in my mood and energy level when the sun comes out.

This week's photos were taken by my 20 year old daughter. One of the happiest signs of spring around here is when the ground is hard enough to let the animals out to graze because they get so excited about having so much room to run and so much FOOD that they dash around aimlessly for hours. It can be entertaining to watch, especially the calves.


They are also incredibly curious. All Lydia had to do to get this photo was to sit down in their field and wait. That light tan one is so cute.

I'm not sure how she managed to get this shot. This very noisy starling nest was built in a hollow spot inside the wall of the calf barn. Her camera is smaller than mine, but it's still quite a reach to get to the hole. I can see at least one chick, but probably two in this photo.



This last one is mine. I need to do some research on how to photograph rainbows, but in the meantime I'm just grateful it isn't raining any more! Happy Spring!

I always enjoy photos of your animals, Judi. I especially love the one of your curious calves! And the rainbow is lovely framing that tree.
