Maybe they are just Sheepish......

Fabulous capture Mickey! #10422386

That's something I never see around here...Sheep! Wonder why...Cows are the best. They always looks so surprised. LOL #10422442

Well, these sheep are really well fed, aren't they. I think they loved your camera. #10422599

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! #10422676

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! #10423316

Beautiful rural scene. I know what you mean about horses- ! #10423381

Rona L. Schwarz 11/17/2012 10:11:29 PM

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!!! #10423529

An excellent capture of the barnyard with the 'life' around it!! #10423554

Robert K. Bemus 11/17/2012 10:55:14 PM

Lamb: the other red meat. Beautiful rural scene, Michelle!! #10423570

Barbara Waldoch 11/17/2012 11:52:25 PM

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 :-) #10423591

Renee Doyle 11/18/2012 1:34:23 AM

They do look like they are checking you gals out :-)
Wonderful rural capture Michelle!! #10423677

Terrific country the textures on the barn, and the way the sheep are posing for you, Michelle! #10423933

Steve J. Schoolcraft 11/18/2012 3:04:16 PM

Great capture... nice scene. I bet you are right about how rare it is to get sheep to look your way. Nice job! #10424488

Laura L. Gonzales 11/18/2012 11:05:59 PM

Just beautiful Michelle!! What a great capture and find. Love the brickwork, color, texture and comp!! Excellent work;) #10424848

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!
