Perfect timing. Calf was obviously just born and is now imprinting with its mother. Wonderful photo.
Detail is impressive.

A photo with a universal theme. All mammals have the innate instinct to nurture their newborns. Sometimes this is unfulfilled, but this scene shows promise for a successful beginning.
