I was minding my own business taking a photograph of something or other, when the sheep in this photo (unknown to me) stood behind me – silently – and let rip a really loud ‘baaaah’! Which made me jump out of my skin! When I turned round this photograph is what I saw…just a sheep staring at me. But it was a photo opportunity, and maybe that is what it wanted…who knows!?

    A cute story line to go along with this great capture! This sheep is peering right through your lens.
    Beautiful range of colors and I love those contrails.

    Excellent wildlife shot. The sky is beautiful and the horizon artfully placed, But most impressive is a photo of a grazer doing something other than eating grass… Unless you were wearing green and he thought you were a huge salad!

    Hhaahah… perhaps she wanted her photo taken. or maybe was looking for a sandwich or something? Up on Mam Tor, they do mug the walkers for whatever they can get.

    Wow – what a great image. It really looks like the sheep wanted to have its picture taken! I love the warm light in your image a lot, the sheep couldn’t have chosen a better spot. Great work!
