    Finally starting to get out with the camera again. These were all taken on a farm owned by a fella who does aikido with my mate. They were taking part in the big Farming Open Day this weekend. There were lambs as well but all of the lamb shots had too shallow DOF.
    Anyway, these little fellas were mostly co-operative but if they got twitched they moved like lightning.
    All taken with the Tamron 17-50 2.8 on my 30D. IIRC all had the same treatment in Canon DPP which involved a bit of contrast, cooling the colour tone, WB adjust to Daylight and Style to Standard.
    On some I've cropped quite freely to place things in the frame so any comments on that/composition/anything much appreciated. There are quite a few (and yet more on flickr) so thanks in anticipation that you get to the end.

    Ahhh! I like the little spotty ones. I imagine they are quite hard to shoot, moving all over the place (unless asleep of course). Well captured I'd say.
