Taken in North Yorkshire on a very cold and windy day! I thought this made a nice (if less interesting) change to the usual photos of more exotic animals. I parked the car in the middle of the road (it was very quiet) to take a quick photo of a waterfall in the distance... When I looked behind me, I was being chased by sheep!

I really like this. It probably should have scored higher because it is composed very well, and the lighting is terrific. I didn't vote in this challenge, but this was one of my favorites.

Well, I really like this photo, though I'm not sure I would consider these wildlife. It has a nice feeling of movement. Will skip on voting.

Cute capture. I can't help but wish you'd captured them as they were rounding the bend and approaching you or if you'd shot horizontal. The most forward one on the left hand side and the two behind being cut off spoils the comp for me.

great lines, and color.....just a hint of pink is nice

sheep are not wild life.

Oh my :O What a sight. I like that you have enough in the frame to get some nearby and some in the distance, it shows some nice depth to the image.

What a fun picture. I like the composition. Mostly I just like the sheep all wandering on down the road.

Yorkshire? Not sure you could really call hill sheep 'wildlife', but I do like the photo.

I wouldn't really see sheep as particularly wild...

is this wildlife ?
01/23/2007 10:25:57 PM
Is this normal where you live? Sure would make getting to work difficult. Love it, love it!!! It's a charming photo with lots of appealing looking sheep. They look like they are smiling. Top notch photo all the way!

looks like Achill island in co. Mayo, Ireland

wild sheep? Sorry...I'm not buying it. Sheep are about as domesticated as it comes.
01/22/2007 08:30:52 PM
Excellent composition.

They look rather domesticated ... marked, even, with red. Interesting picture, though I would like more detail and sharpness on those first few faces.

Excellent shot. Love the composition and the neat randomness of it. Good work.

I love teh photo - all those great faces - great cropping, exposure etc - giving it a 5 though as these are domesticated. If this were not only a wildlife challenge, would have given it at least an 8

Domesticated sheep herd??? I think, yes.
01/22/2007 11:35:25 AM
Domesticated sheep are not really wildlife in my book
01/22/2007 10:19:02 AM
one of my favorites!!

Sheep are not wild animals.
01/22/2007 07:33:21 AM
nice shot, but seems quite domesticated to me.
01/22/2007 06:47:12 AM
Some people might not think a herd of sheep is wildlife but if this is in New Zealand or ICeland I KNOW they are let out to roam on mountains for months on end...so, for me it's wildlife, good luck to you..
01/22/2007 06:23:14 AM
nice shot, but clearly not wild...
01/22/2007 02:53:10 AM
NOt exactly wild but a very cool image regardless
01/22/2007 02:05:20 AM
They don't look very wild, but I do love the shot.

One of my favorites in the challenge. The scene is superb, the colors are wonderful. Nice lines and use of the entire frame. Highly rated.
