Walk on the Wild Side

 

I thought sheep were supposed to run away from you in open countryside, not attack hoping to hoof you to the floor.  Must be my natural animal magnetism ;o)

Well matey - they're either hungry or they fancy you!
blackdog: Out for revenge I think - the dog that had caused the ruckus appeared over the brow of the hill a minute or so later!

I have been attacked by sheep. They just don't like guys. I am enjoying your agricultural exploration. You either had very interesting light of your photoshop is doing overtime.
blackdog: This is my second time! the first time they all milled around jostling me as though I had a bale of hay under my coat for them! No ps, just low sunlight - went out with light on sheep in my mind and got lucky!

This is hysterical, Mike. It's like a sheep ballet! grin
blackdog: It was most bizarre, lucky I was ready for them ;o)

You've captured the movement of the sheep well here, Mike. Good to see sheep on the menu. lol. The blowing fleeces look very good. Where are they going? They are running over to get into my blog.
blackdog: Thanks Chad - you are welcome to these ones - nutters all ;o)

I think it is your good looks...no question about that grin the lighting is stunning, LOL at Ric about the mint sauce, it does make them taste better though.
I just love this picture, hope you are not all beaten up, are you able to post tomorrow....
blackdog: No I survived Astrid despite all the feminine attention ;o)

LOL at Chad - they are more likely running to get away from his blog - the thought of an eternity spent on Shutterchance was just too much for them. A very unusual shot - you don't very often get pictures of sheep in motion. The lighting is superb.
Ingrid
blackdog: Thanks Ingrid - I think it was more dog than blog that was on their minds!
they gone mad...
blackdog: indeed they had ;o)
I like it Mike. Looks like a choreography. Great lighting
blackdog: Thanks Richard. They were on a roll!
lol! Those sheep seem full of serious intent! Like the mono - it somehow makes them look more menacing. (:o)
blackdog: Thanks Roz - just glad they weren't cattle ;o)
It is a shame that such a useful animal is so dim. Second from the right looks to have a fair turn of speed. Farmer will be pleased if it wasn't his dog rounding up the sheep but some idiot with his pet pooch
blackdog: It was some idiot with a king charles spaniel of all things - proof of how stupid they are though, they could have made mincemeat of it! Which bit of fields, dogs and leads did they miss - perhaps the sheep aren't so stupid after all ;o)

Great movement, blackdog.
This is fun, love the wind in their fur. If we shout mince sauce at them what are the bleeting at you?
