Let me start off by saying that I’m not a vegetarian.  I have a weakness for steak and burgers although I try to consume these items in moderation.

But, these little guys and/or gals give me pause.

I photographed these baby lambs one day recently while cruising around in agricultural country looking for raptors to photograph.  We passed a large field on which there were hundreds of ewes, most with new born lambs.

The lambs couldn’t have been more than days or a few weeks old.  They were extremely curious about us.  As we got out of the vehicle to watch them, several of them trotted up to the fence separating the field from the road and checked us out.

And, the truth is, they are so damn cute.  Food for thought, I guess.
