Camera Critters

 

Black Nose Sheep ... Valais, Switzerland


We were walking down a montain trail when the regular trail was blocked, so we had to cut through a farm close by. That is when I saw the Wooly lambs ...or best know as the Blacknose Sheep.  They were so cute.  I could have spent a lot more time taking pictures, but everyone else was getting way ahead of me.   I didn't want to get left behind since I didn't really know where we were  ... but I did know it was steep and difficult and I didn't want to chance climbing it alone:)

  8. Oh my, the sheep are beautiful! I don't think I've seen any like these. I admit that I would have been lagging behind taking photos too. I also like that interesting shot of your cat. Super movement!

    This cold weather is awful!! I hope never to complain about the heat in the summer again. It is so much easier to stand by a fan than to try moving about with tons of layers of clothing on. Plus, this cold saps all of one's energy. I have to admire how you get out and do so much in these temps. If we didn't have to eat or feed the birds, I probably would hibernate till Spring. lol.

    If I have any hamburg in the freezer, I'm going to make us some stuffed peppers. If not, then I'll probably make a pot of corn chowder. This always tastes wonderful in the winter. Mmmm. On that note, I'll takemy leave. You and Izzi have a wonderful day, and do stay warm. Hugs, Edna B.

  10. Those are just the cutest things! But I can understand your need to stay with the group - I have absolutely no sense of direction and would be wandering the mountains for days before they'd find my body.
