Picture of the month #9: Lambs

After watching ‘Lambing Live’, seeing lambs in fields on my way to work and  cute pictures of lambs from @herdyuk, @farmersoftheuk and many more, every time I log on to Twitter, lambs seemed to be the obvious seasonal subject matter for our Picture of the Month post this time. One picture from our collections immediately springs to mind, as it featured in the John Tarlton exhibition last year, and is one of my personal favourites.

But I felt sure that there must be more lambs in our photographic collections and sure enough, Photographic Assistant Caroline Benson was able to come up with these two beautiful images from the Eric Guy collection
