Here are two from a friends sheep farm in New Hampshire.

This was taken this past winter - sheep waiting to be fed in a snowstorm. I like how the stone wall in the background looks like another herd of sheep in the distance.




The second photo is from a week or so ago. Lambing season has begun. This little girl is about two days old.

I kept looking for the lamb in the first photo and not finding it. It was then that I scrolled down and saw the second photo.

The first photo looks like a hard winter day. Lambing in those conditions must be difficult. I love the second photo. What a cute little baby! I think there is a law somewhere that says baby animals have to be cute!

Good work!

There must be something about taking their photographs that gets the attention of farm animals. I noted the cows staring in the direction of Paul in his cow scene and here are the sheep looking intently in your direction. Go figure. Maybe they thought you were about to feed them

Regardless of the reason, very well done!

Nice captures! You certainly have caught the attention of the sheep in the first image and sheesh, weather wise, it sure looks cold! The 2nd capture is definitely a sweet thing...the composition is perfect and the background is nicely blurred so all focus is on the lamb. Thanks for sharing! :G

Yes Selvin and Stitch,

I think the sheep were both a little put off and curious about the creature with the one big eye stalking them in the snow. It was also feeding time and I was standing between them and their hay, so that also kept then all looking in my direction.

Bill
