  1. Funny hos I have the impression I had already commented on the wren...Maybe you didn't have to validate the comments?!
    I love these pics of the seep, a beautiful mix indeed,
    but they really need a good shaving, LOL!
    Well done, cheers!

    1. Thanks Noushka, but they have another more important 'happening' shortly before they get sheered.{:))

  2. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ...uh!..oh! Sorry Roy I shouldn't have started to count them!..lol.

    An excellent study of members of the flock Roy.

    When seen as a flock we see them as just sheep but look at them individually and each one appears to have a character all of it's own!...(and no, I haven't got a sheep fetish...no really...I haven't!!)...[;o)

  4. Well, what a poser! A definite case of 'I'm ready for my close-up Mr De Millle' ;-) It is very handsome and I'm sure it would supply some very nice, woolly sweaters too.

    Great photos of the Wren on the last post. I always find them difficult to photograph as they skulk around in the undergrowth so much.

    Lovely photos of the Peacock butterfly on the earlier post too which I'm not sure if I commented on or not! I've been unwell and unable to get out looking during the good weather :-( but did see one in my front garden the other day. I'm assuming you're away on holiday, hope you're having/had a great time!

  5. I saw some of those today, did not know what type they were. Also saw black ones and lambs black with white heads, really funny mix.

  6. These sheep are indeed very much wool I see Roy and that will also make them special. The fact that the head is more black than white and still only wool I find very strange. Nice just to see it. Sheep
