Things That Make You Go Awwwww

I've been hiding in the wool house during the heat of the day(s). As I got ready to head in for dinner, I glanced over the front field and saw something I thought I'd never see.



I tried to silently run get my camera and sneak back and snapped this picture through the fence just in case Hank woke up or the sheep decided to make a run for the barn...



When I'm faced with a once in a lifetime photo opp, I try to always switch my camera to program mode so someone smarter than me is setting my exposure... I knew it was just a matter of seconds before someone blew my cover.



I wish I'd set the aperture myself though so both Hank and Esther were in focus. I got so caught up in the moment and it never crossed my mind to think for myself ;-).

How sweet Hank looked sleeping up on the hill overlooking his sheep. And right next to the one sheep who would need the most protection. The one sheep I thought would never recognize Hank as an ally and let him lie down with her.



Awwwww.
