    I was walking through a field the other day, and a few sheep were busy eating the said field. I tried to take a photo of a big one, but she kept eating the field and wouldn't look at me, so I walked towards a small one, and he posed for me - this was taken from about 3 feet (1 metre) away.

    Was a bit of a job getting a decent exposure on a black lamb on a bright day, but I'm happy with it - watcha think?

    Hey, you did very well with the exposure on a black sheep in the bright sun! Very well! This is really good.
    And the little ones still have sweeter faces than the adult sheep. So I am happy you're showing us a lamb here, albeit a big lamb.

    (Maybe one day I shall explain to you all why there is a Black Welsh Mountain Sheep somewhere in North Wales that is called after my daughter. Yes, my daughter "has" a sheep like this one, only is "her" sheep 3 years old by now, but when it was little, it looked a lot like this).

    Baaaa. Now it's stuck.
    "Baa-baa, black sheep, have you any wool? Yes, sir, yes, sir, three bags full..." :roll:

    Cheers all, glad it's not just me been singing it over and over all night in my head!

    Raymond, it's shot at 17mm with a crop factor of 1.6 so about 28mm in old money.

    Thanks for the comments :D

    Damn that lamb is cute, and it has great contrast with all the green plants around it.
