Kung-fu lamb

Discussion in 'Other Animals' started by Desmond, Aug 5, 2007.

  1. Today I tested the 70-200 on the month-old lambs on the farm in New Zealand . They are very frisky and run around in packs excercising but one in particular thought he was "Jackie-lamb "

    I couldn't imagine what you meant by "kung-fu lamb". Now I know! Great shots. Made me smile. Thanks for sharing.
     
  7. I share a "lifestyle block ' [ mini farm ] with my landlord . In New Zealand they breed the lambs to be born in winter [July/August ] . I'm not sure why , but on the south Island they are born in the snow which doesn't sound very nice . The pictures were taken with the 70-200 on the D80 because I wanted to test the focusing . I had to send the pair of to Nikon because I noticed that it seemed to focus behind the subject . It turned out to be a sensor calibration fault but now seems to be ok .

    That is too cute Desmond. Nice to see some of your shots again.
     
  10. I've been pretty pre-occupied for posting pictures for a while but I should be getting back into it . Except for a while in two weekends time when I climb Ruapehu again and photograph a ski competition . I may choose a better hotel this time though ...
