Taken on a little track somwhere between Sale and Bairnsdale. This little calf had escaped from his paddock and was happily exploring the outside world.

How cute….what a serendipitous capture; the light is wonderful….
Thanks. He was rather flightly and it took me quite a while to get this shot. I’m sure I looked quite ridiculous hiding behind trees then sneakily creeping out to photograph him!

Cute :) ….did he get back to mummy?
Nope :( I wasn’t strong enough to throw him over the electric fence :( and I looked for a farmer for ages and couldn’t find one. I’m sure he’ll find his way back though.
Been busy and didn’t get a chance to comment earlier, but I really liked the B/W version. The color version looks great, too!
This is a really great shot Cathy, it has a lot of charm and is really pleasant to look at. And I love the shallow depth of field too. Well done :)
Thanks Alex. Very much appreciated.
Okay, I’m going to take a stab at something here. What makes this is “great” picture. Is it the calf? Is it the color?
Thanks JR, glad you like it. For me it’s how the calf is in the scene – busy doing his own thing in a place he wouldn’t normally be. A snippet of time.
