Spring Lamb

Head of lamb recently born

This weekend some of my friends went on a photowalk in Belfast where the 6th (and as we now know last) Irish Blog Awards took place. Several of them were long listed and Shane Murphy was even under the last five. He might not have won in the end but to be in the last five is an achievement in itself and from what I hear, they all had a great walk and later night at the awards.

I couldn’t make it unfortunately due to other plans. One of them was a little outing with us volunteers and the staff of the Pavilion Theatre in Dun Laoghaire to Airfield in Dundrum, a working farm basically in the middle of town.
It was the first time for me there and a perfect time. Spring, sunshine and everything that goes with it. This little fella was quite vivid and his mother gave out to him several times. So it was a bit tricky to get him, but I think this shows him well.
And I have to say I enjoyed my own little photowalk a lot.

    Sorry, Petra, i just like the woolly fluffyness and feel of spring that you captured here and i don’t understand why it makes people even think of food (oh, and airfield is just a perfect place this time of the year)
