On Thursday, I and my friends, Jeannie and Becky took a random ride through a part of rural Bucks County. REALLY RURAL!
After exploring the Stover-Myer Mill and grounds over the road from this farm, we crossed over to watch the activity in a barnyard that was chock full of sheep, goats, and cows of every shape and size.
In my experience it's difficult to get sheep to look up from their grazing, as it is to interest horses in cameras (unless, of course, one has brought some apples!). Cows are another story altogether.
But this little group of sheep (apart from the hugely fat one having a rest) seemed VERY interested in us!

Well, these sheep are really well fed, aren't they. I think they loved your camera.

Really like this Barnyard Capture.
As for the FAT SHEEP being " ALERT " is all related to the probability for becoming a CROWN ROAST or a Garlic & Pepper crusted Leg of Lamb . Stew is also a tasty possibility ;o)
Great Shooting

Lamb isn't anywhere near the top of my favorite meats, so these critters wouldn't have to fear me! Wonderful composition and detail, Michelle!

Lovely image, Michelle! Sheep are so beautiful and you've captured some curious ones here! I have had a bit of time as well trying to get them to look up while they're grazing!

How clever of you to go around with treats for the animals! Wonderful barnyard scene, Michelle, so beautifully composed. Had a big laugh when I read your comment funny that I showed it to my hubby. But you know, it's true!!!

Beautifully captured, Michelle!

I think they were a male and female, as the smaller one was calling (males call and are smaller). Lots of tadpoles anyway :-)

Great capture... nice scene. I bet you are right about how rare it is to get sheep to look your way. Nice job!
