Pets & Domesticated Animals
Baslow Edge, Peak District
Taken on a Sony a6000 with the Sony FE 70-300mm G lens. In order to make the calf stand out, I used the widest aperture available to me at f/4.5 with a shutter speed of 1/160 to avoid camera shake.
This curious little Highland Calf was a bit more adventurous than the others, allowing me to get close enough to take his portrait. Normally the mothers are very protective of their young, but she seemed happy enough to let me photograph her little beauty as long as I didn't get too close. After taking this image, I spent the rest of my time admiring this little calves mischievous attitude and curiosity. I have always been fascinated by these animals so it was a very special moment being able to get so close to such a majestic animal.
