Morning Dog Walk: Do You Often Feel Like You Are Being Watched?

Facebooktwittermail

This morning, we walked along a nearby field which usually has a large flock of sheep and they seemed to take a lot of interest. This photo reminds me of school class photographs where you can never get all the children to look at the camera at the same time!

I don’t know why, but I always think Sheep look better in Black and White.

I was up at Dawn to get ready to photograph the Red Squirrels in the Yorkshire Dales this weekend and looked out of the window to a stunning sunrise with this Ram sitting on a ridge, I couldn’t resist a silhouette shot.

Deers, Birds, even more Sheep, but no Little Owls

I was up before sunrise on Sunday as the weather forecast looked promising and decided to go off in search of some Little Owls.

There are a couple of locations that I’m aware of inside the grounds of Calke Abbey in Staffordshire, however, no matter how far I walked, how long I waited and how much time I strained my eyes through binoculars, they decided to not to show themselves.

However, all was not lost as I could clearly hear the Red and Fallow Deer Stags bellowing across the entire estate so I made my way to the enclosure to capture the following photos.

Black and White Sheep, That’s All!

Nothing to see here, just some Black & White Sheep for the fun of it!

I was waiting on the edge of a field as I could hear Barn Owls in a nearby forest, they didn’t show themselves, but I did have a large flock of Sheep watching me and as the light was fading quick I thought I’d snap some shots to convert to Black & White.
