Lovely pic of the newborn, did you see the birth


We saw it but was about 20 seconds too late to photograph it.
By the time we stopped, got the cameras out, the beanbags organized etc. the little one got to its feet.
We saw, and photographed his first few steps on this earth of ours - beautiful.

Not a good image but 5 of the 7
