I definitely wanted to get something for this challenge but didn’t have the time to go to one of the bigger zoos which are quite a drive away from us. However, we have a petting zoo not too far away, so that had to do.
Did loads of shots but the expression on this very good looking sheeps face really did it for me ;-)
The score was at 6.7 for the first day and a half, then it slowly went down to 6.5/6.4 were it stayed the whole week.
Thanks so much for the super score and comments. This shoot was so much fun, I must go out more often ;-)

I had this sheep pegged as a SandyP image. That's a compliment since she's good with animals. Well, and with people, too. :)

What I'm trying to say, in my bumbling way, is:

I like this, Irene.

It's very well done. Friendly and sharp. :)

And I love his smile and the twinkle in his eye. He appears to have a secret.

Where are the water drops!? I need to see water drops!

Really good work Irene. This is so lovely and has such a nice warm feel to it - perfect for a petting zoo ad

Thanks Andrew. My husband said this sheep is the Mona Lisa of the animal world ;-)

Super shot Irene. No idea this was yours. As I commented earlier, fantastic clarity. The clarity and the facial expression of the sheep really makes the shot.
