    I know they are not the most "exciting" of subjects but I love animals...I'm always making friends on the side of the road....such as these wooley lil fellows/ladies.

    They were SO INTENSELY concentrating on their grass-eating that they would NOT look up even for a moment. I got some sideways looks (all while STILL eating) but these were the best shots.


    I loved how they had their legs bent in unison:



    Same 2 as above - seemed like they were "pals."

    This is the closest I was able to get one of them to "look up" at me (STILL EATING but definitely looking at me out of the corner of the eye):

    Neat shots, those dudes need some grooming help, looks like they just got sheered.

    Jen this wouldn't come in earlier - now it seems fine - must be my end - your sheep are so different to ours - nice set - that lens isn't doing too baaaaaa-d - - looks like they have grazed that grass pretty close too.

    I like #6 close-up the best.

    Yep, I think they have been recently sheered, but they are cleaner that way.

    Obviously grazing is a serious business! I love the last one...he seems to have the one eye on you! Nice.
