a baby bull

The neighbors down the street know how much I love baby animals and know full well to call us when an animal is giving birth. Actually, that's not totally true -- it's just that they are super awesome and thought to themselves, "Hey, Blackie just birthed a calf, and I really think Justin and Sarah would love to see this, and Sarah would like to take lots of pictures."

So that's what we did.

Forgive the blurry, ultra-grainy images. It was almost dark out, and we had already downed a few by the time we got the call.

In the third picture, Great Neighbor is checking the sex of the calf. It was so awesome, and I'm so grateful that they were kind enough to include us in the excitement. Then, after all the hoopla, we went over to see the same neighbors' 2,600 pound bull that fathered the calf.

Keep in mind that this is a 4-second, wide-open exposure AT NIGHT, but Mr. Bull (on the right) was quite amiable and happy to pose stone-still for me.
