Third in my lamb series.

I think I've done it this time: I saw an opportunity to clone out the only visible ugly plastic ear tag in this picture without it being too noticeable. I think it worked quite well, but have a look yourself and see how you feel about it. I'll upload the original as version 2.

Comments and mods welcome!

You have done very well with the cloning here Conrad, especially when you look at number 2 and see how big the plastic tag was. Cute shot too.

Thanks for your award by the way, much appreciated Smile

TBH, the tab isn't annoying, they are not wild animal, so it doesn't really matter IMHO.
But good work.

Chuck - Sounds like you have never washed a woollen sweater with the washing machine on the Hot setting. I assure you that wool shrinks a lot more than this, when you do that! :-(

Another goodun - I suppose I still think the tags should be left, as that is what was there. But it's all a question of taste.

Sandy - Normally I would agree with you, but I hate these ugly things so much that I couldn't resist the urge to remove them. But I've just had a tip about a farmer who doesn't use tags, so I'll have a look and see if I can shoot a "naturally tag-less" lamb! Smile
