Newborn Calf, Ontario, Canada, 1977

Photograph by Sam Abell

A cow cares for her newborn calf on a Mennonite farm in Elora, Ontario, Canada. Settled by Scottish immigrants in the early 1800s, Elora became an important agricultural town. The tiny village on the banks of the Grand River is now a haven for artists and a destination for tourists seeking the town’s tranquility and spectacular vistas.
