How cute!
Love the way they are all staring at you, Susan.
There is even a nice diagonal fence in the background!!
Well done.

You do have their attention...
Were you strumming a guitar and humming, Susie???
Or, they like Rolo, perhaps... ;)
The lambs are very pretty...

Susie Peek-Swint May 02, 2004

Thank you Bill, Nobi, Deborah, Bonnie, Mary, Debra, Stephen, Shirley, Darren, Marie, Terry, Kathy, Kenton, and Starlet!

Late with my response but a big thank you so much for all your great comments!

Terry, wouldn't you love to know how I commanded such attention LOL .. I think Nobi had it right with them being curious about Rolo. I've found that sheep are inherently curious creatures and even if they initially turn away if you wait quietly they'll come back again. Rolo is very calm ~ even shares his marrow bones with the wild birds in the garden ~ and a great magnet!

Cheers, Susie #514364

Carolyn J. Connolly May 18, 2004

Hi there Susie! What else can I add - just a WONDERFUL image! Sorry I missed it before! A very worthy finalist indeed...all the best from now on... By the way, where was your shot taken - was it taken very near to your home? If so, you certainly live in a beautiful area! What area do you actually live in? All that rain you get will keep things green!! We REALLY need some here Downunder at the moment - even in our area of Lake Macquarie, NSW! Plenty of clouds came over yesterday, but we basically only had a few spots of rain :( ! #547520

Susie Peek-Swint May 18, 2004

Hi Carolyn, thank you so much for your comments~ hope you get rain soon.. or you're welcome to some of ours :)
We are in West Dorset ~ close to the bottom and about 10 miles from the coast. I'm posting a link of our village that I uploaded a while back so you can get an overview of it ~ the fields surround us so plenty of places to walk Rolo! Here's the link:
Regards to you, Susie #547548

Nobu Nagase May 20, 2004

Many congratulations, Susie!!!
I lost track how many times I said this to you already today... lol...
Great to see this image again, here.
I loved it the first time...
Certainly a beautiful capture.
Love the way those sheep are paying their attention to you and Rolo... #552511

Susie Peek-Swint May 20, 2004
