The Three Lambs ...

Running late again, but for what it's worth here is my entry for this week's, or should that be last week's, Sunday Challenge.

In keeping with recent challenges there were a few options around a central theme and I elected to go with a combination of Spring and New Growth.

I had been hoping to use one of the shots I took whilst doing the Farndale Daffodil Walk, but in the end I wasn't all that happy with the shots I got on the day and so decided to look for inspiration elsewhere.

As it happens, that was to be found much closer to home, in a small field on the outskirts of Northallerton that contained a few sheep along with their fairly young looking lambs.

Initially, when I came upon them and moved in to try and get a close up shot there were only two lambs in my sights - the two in the foreground. However, once I'd started snapping away a third lamb came across and nuzzled in behind them.

I guess he just didn't want to miss the opportunity of having his photo taken!

Please view on black for best effect.
