The luck of timing is key to any worthwhile photograph I’ve taken. And that was true is this case, when I happened upon the birth of this calf about five minutes after its emergence out of mother into the world. I was granted about five minutes to capture what I could, before it was clear that my welcome had come to an end. Not before I triggered off about 200 frames. It’s always a moment when I get direct eye contact from the lens to the subject, in this case the newborn calf caught between the usual drama that unfolds during these rituals. There’s a lot of energy happening here, luckily captured in the frame. It’s an image that will enliven any room, home or office.
