Hey look, the electric fence isn't on

LOL! Apparently it wasn't, or else we'd be looking at a picture of blackened lamb! Wonderful composition, Chris - a neat capture! #1468094

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! #10174343

Thanks a lot for your comments on this one. It was a lovely "fine" day, we have them occasionally!! #10175424

Tammy Espino 6/11/2012 6:34:27 PM

I like the one looking at you! A great capture! #10176758

Chris Ebben 6/11/2012 7:47:26 PM

Thanks Tammy, they were a friendly lot, kept their eyes on us the whole time we were there. #10176838

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. #10177156

Chris Ebben 6/12/2012 4:24:06 PM

Thanks Mary. Let me know how you go with the Choko cooking. #10177994

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. #10178891

Lovely capture, Chris, they look great! #10179289

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! #10179386

ha ha, very intelligent sheep ;-)...such a wonderful rural scene! #10179446

Love the beautiful shades of greens, tones, clarity, perspective, scene & mood captured here, Chris! A beautiful country scene, my friend!

Now I have to look up Chocko!

Chris Ebben 6/15/2012 3:12:57 AM

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. #10180995

Kirsten Kiki Kjaer 6/15/2012 6:05:48 AM

Or he was showing off!! HA!
This made me smile, Chris. A wonderful scene and image. #10181173

Patrick Rouzes 6/15/2012 10:59:50 AM

CONGRATS on the EP, Chris! Like Amanda's story too!

Thanks so much for your great comments. Isn't it good to hear everyone's stories!! #10182214

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! #10182445

Ellen Hodges 6/16/2012 12:16:20 PM
