This is a lovely picture. Sheep are so endearing. The look on his face shows he does not have a clue what is wrong with your internet, maybe hundred of you neighbours should move and don't touch the Internet again
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: They truly are - and this breed just has the sweetest faces!
I'd love the neighbors to move... smile

Alan will like this one, Elizabeth - when I saw the thumbnail, I thought at first it was his
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: He did, Lisl! His favorite breed!!
He seems to have had his neck shaved...must be a dribbler.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Funny, huh?! Good one!
Love the sepia, Elizabeth. Very atmospheric.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Pauline - I'm glad you think so, I thought it suited!

The wooly has a sheepish expression.
No internet - sit back with a bottle of good wine and enjoy some personal moments smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: She does have an interesting look on her face!

Ah yes... we take advantage! smile
Very nicely posed for you Elizabeth. Lovely rural scene
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes she did! Thank you Janet!
They are quite cuddly looking characters aren't they. I've got two sheep pictures coming up, SC.will be suffering from sheep overload!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: They truly are cuddly - I love the faces on these Herdwick's! I'm looking forward to your sheep pics... I think SC can handle it!
The sheep must be a hardy breed to survive up there, this one retains a nice wooley overcoat
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Apparently so, Martin! They leave them up on the Fells through the winters!
Queen of all she surveys, eh?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Absolutely!
I heart sepia...
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile YAY!!! Thanks Larry!

A lovely timeless appeal. The sheep looks like it has its fleece slightly open at the front smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you so much Alan! She does appear to have her buttons undone!
Very nice. I like the diagonal line feel to it going up from the sheep to the top left of the image.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Jacquelyn! I appreciate the technical critique!
