When I took this photo of the flock of sheep at the Museum this guy wanted to challenge me so I quickly and submissively moved away Smile
We are off for a week to Club Mykonos, a holiday resort on our West Coast today. Hope to catch a few good images :0
Thanx so much for your V & C's on yesterday's upload - I was amazed. It sat on my pc for a long time as I thought it was a bit below standard Smile
Special thanx to Brian [ Brian65] and Jukka [ kuvailija] for gracing me with their UA's.

Mean looking gaze in your direction, Herman: with horns like that, a retreat seemed the wisest option.
Hope you have a good week away with lots more top shots in the bag.
