Three Little Lambs, 3

I’ve now taken hundreds of pictures of the three little lambs investigating their world; here’s a selection from April 21st.

The moms know it is almost feeding time; the lambs — well two of them — have their interest piqued, too.

The lambs are now getting a share of their moms’ grain.

The lambs aren’t yet as diligent about getting their grain.

Single lamb was born on April 7th, and the set of twins was born April 9th.

 

Plovers in the Air

Birds flying in tight flocks fascinate me, leaving me wondering how they communicate that synchronized take off, flight and landing. And of course I have to try to photograph them at it.

I saw this flock take off from a mud flat then make a quick u-turn.

They looped around the pond a few times then landed pretty much where they started.

Lambing Around

I visited the lambs at Middleton Place on April 17th and gave a chuckle when I saw this scene of the 9 day old cutie using snuggling up with mom.

A chuckle, not an outright laugh, because I could not spot the twin lamb.

After junior 1 settled on the ground for another nap I could just see another white tuft behind mom. Phew!

She took a little stroll and it wasn’t long before they both hopped up to join her.
