Running for my life....

I took this photo just about 30 minutes ago... 8:15 this evening of Monday the 30th of January.
 Louise had just started heavy labor and I wanted to watch...she was just pushing her bag of waters. She had other ideas after my flash went off in camera,  she escorted me quickly to the nearest fence.  Funny thing though, as I didn't think she was following me that close around the corner of the barn and I turned thinking she didn't chase me that far.  She was hot on my tail...I think the flash bothered her.  I vaulted the fence and dropped camera, the flashlight and my heart.  After I gathered myself up, I wondered why she acted so maternal when I've been right beside her before while she was calving.  Goes to show you, be on your toes!
I left her when I saw the water broke and went to the house...set the timer for 30 minutes and went down to check her.  Nice little heifer calf already trying to stand.  This time, I didn't press her just yet and get in with her.  I'll wait till daylight!  She's got it under control..
