Shadows At The Farm

weekend reflections is right below

On a recent visit to a local farm I encountered a Mama and her Baby hanging out in one of the pens open to the public ...




She started to come to me



But she decided the Boy Scouts were more interesting.

Fun post for the day, Dianne! Love the sheep! And what great shadows they make!! Hugs to Hope and wishing you both a fun weekend!

How a sheep thinks is beyond me. After, you were the one with the camera, so why turn away from you is a mystery. I think the front is the more flattering to the ewe than the back side. Not that the sheep cares even a bit about photographic style...

These are very nice photos of the sheep. I like it that you were able to get so close to them to get these shots.

These are so nice, Di. You can feel the crispness of the autumn day. The sheep look pretty warm, though!

Did you take Hope?

Peace from your friend,

Interesting gentle creatures. We just got back from a long awaited trip to Ireland and must have seen a zillion sheep there. I avoided the mutton though... :)

Barb said...

Your photos are so crisp! i love the fence shadows on the lamb and the way her wooly coat is ridged.
