Hey look, the electric fence isn't on

Hey look, the electric fence isn't on
This one lamb kept running over & pushing on the fence like it was showing us it wasn't turned on. Lens aperture f/5, shutter speed 1/400sec, focal length 31mm, ISO 80.

    LOL! Apparently it wasn't, or else we'd be looking at a picture of blackened lamb! Wonderful composition, Chris - a neat capture!

The next time the fence is on that sheep is in for a bit of a suprise, Chris! What a delightful farmyard scene this is!

I got a good chuckle (or maybe choko) from your title/description, Chris! It does look like a fine day for taking photos in Australia!
Thanks very much for all the choko cooking ideas, Chris. My neighbors will have a bountiful crop, from the looks of their garden today. And they've promised to give Scott and me several, so I can try all the recipes you mentioned tonight.

I don't know if it would be smart or stupid, telling you the fence wasn't turned on, Chris!! Well they are sheep!! Great capture of this small flock...well done!!

I love watching sheep, a delightful capture Chris. As for aftershocks, they are continuous but did have a rather nasty one at 2.30 in the morning a couple of days ago. Enough to get me out of bed and check on everyone. There was a loud crack following by violent shaking, lasting only ten seconds an ended up only being a 4.2. Everybody I spoke to thought it was bigger than that.

He is funny! I don't think he has ever been shocked! I ran into an electric fence once as a child and to this day I am afraid of fences. I was crawling under one, and my fanny touched the fence. It was bobwire with those little circuit breaker knobs.(On my grandpa's farm) I like this image Chris!

Thanks all for your great comments. It was good to get a fine day. And good to hear you & your family are all OK Ann. I liked your story about your encounter with a electric fence Amanda, something not easily forgotten no doubt.

Chris: I have about a thousand kinds of animals that are my 'favorites'; dogs, cats, penguins, gorillas, mocking birds, elk, giraffes, seals, horses, cows, elephants... well you get the picture... Sheep are on the list. I love them. It is so neat that one was testing the fence in front of you! Well captured!
