In this picture a curious sheep pauses in the middle of her lunch to scrutinize my camera! Photographed on the Isle of Lewis, Outer Hebrides, Scotland. This sheep is probably a cross between a Cheviot (because of her Roman nose) and a Suffolk (because of her short legs). She was the one of the only two in the flock that did not move away, as I approached the fence with my camera. Ear tagging is infinitely preferable to the cruel practice of branding. Less obvious are the short legs, which bear a huge burden, as farmers breed for meat, not for agility. She will have been slaughtered the same year that I took this picture, but Heaven is not just for humans, so, when I see her again, her fleece will be as white as snow. Camera details:- Canon PowerShot S3 IS, Auto + zoom lens
