It's a bit early in the morning for me to get to grips with shimmering sheep. But I love the observation involved in the photo, and the way the elements enclose each other.

There's a hint of Dante's Inferno for Sheep here. Doomed to follow each other's tails blindly, for all eternity.
I'm sure colour wouldn't make me see that, or think like that.

Great shapes and contrast.

They could have done with a bigger tree for shelter, presumably from the heat of the day.

I want three volunteers to walk under that tree.... ewe, ewe and ewe GrinGrin Sorry, it had to be done, either that or the Life of Brian scene re juniper berries.

I can't match Moira's comment so have me vote.

No- A little bit of Orton filter. Thanks Cliff.

Sometimes I worry about you Dave. But I've made bad jokes too, so mutton criticize.

Thanks, all.

The grass is noticeably shorter under the tree - so a lot of eating and possibly sleeping as been done there. Maybe other things too. However, the shade of the tree may have made the grass greener, coining a new phrase: the grass is always greener under the shade of a tree.

Excuse me this morning, I'm on painkillers Tongue

It's the tree that caught my eye, I dabbled with bonsai for some years and that tortured tree just reminded me of them. Really good in mono.Smile
