Photo Monday – Sheep Also Get Caught Eyes Closed in Pictures

I always bring my camera to the New York State Sheep and Wool Festival. I hate switching out lenses so I pick one and figure out my pictures from there. I think I did the wide angle zoom last year and I had to use the 40mm (zoomed in all the way) and get really close in order to eliminate distracting backgrounds. So I went the other way this year and used my macro lens (100mm). That might be a little too much zoom. I think 50mm will be just fine from now on.

Anyway.

We always visit the animals as a family and I always take pictures of them. I should switch that up next year… This year, I somehow caught most sheep when they were busy chewing. I’d take a picture and they’d look half drunk. It took lots of tries to get something decent with most of them.

Except blue ribbon sheep here who was being posed by his/her handlers…

Oh, there was also these two gorgeous sheep. I think the handler told me they were Gotland sheep? They had the most beautiful curls.

See? And they were so soft! I want my hair to be like that…
