Family portraits

I didn??t manage to take any photos of the spring lambs last year so when I spotted a field of them as I drove through Goodwood on Thursday I knew I would have to return with my camera. It took a little longer than I expected this afternoon as they??d moved to the far side of the field. However, after a little bit of exploring I found somewhere to park the car and quietly crept up to the gate with my camera. They were rather taken by surprise by my appearance and didn??t hang around for long but I managed to capture a few priceless expressions which conjured up captions in my mind. Judging by the matching numbers painted on the side of some of the lambs there have been a large number of twins born on the Goodwood Estate this spring and they certainly seemed happiest posing for the camera in pairs!

Twins

Follow my leader

Walking with purpose

Two pairs!

Family portrait. There's always one who won't look at the camera!

“Mum, what's that lady doing?!”

A natural poser!

Its lovely seeing the lambs out in the fields - such a shame the farmer spoils the rustic view by spraying numbers on them!
