The lambs had been dropping in the day or so before we passed through there, some that day still slick and red-orange with afterbirth. Not all of them made it. We saw a fair number of dead lambs in the fields, though plenty more romping around in that surprised, morning-of-the-world way. We thanked the ewes for making us dinner.
I occupied myself in part by trying to get good photos of a lamb. This turned out to be a tad more difficult than expected, and resulted in me taking over one hundred pictures of sheep. (Which aren't really that intrinsically interesting.)
Kowhai tree blossoms.
In New Zealand, bus waits for you.
A mail drop outside a sheep farm, for the leaving of large packages.
A field of Dr. Seuss trees. (I did not note the species name, sadly.
Ewe and lamb.
The sheep go marching up the hill, hurrah, hurrah.
Several hours later, marching down the same hill.
High tailing it away from the camera.
As usual, more at the Flickr set.
