18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

I was very lucky to attend the birth of this calf. The cow was giving birth, and her friend was standing next to her all the time. Then he helped her straighten the little one, licking it with her. This photo was taken in the first minute of life.
