Spot the Sheep

Near Cornella, Victoria.


  1. They have some greta hiding places. These are great shots. I'm amazed by the size of those bales sometimes.
    Sydney - City and Suburbs

  2. I like round bales so much better than rectangular.

    Must confess, it wasn't until I reached the 3rd photo that I actually notice the sheep. They sure do blend in well!

  3. I have an obsession with hay. Take photos of it all the time. These are lovely with the sheep in the photo as well.

  4. Many thanks for your comments.

    Chuck, that’s why I titled it “Spot the Sheep.” :)

  5. I wonder how long bales are left in situ. Why are some kept in sheds and some left in the paddock? And why don't sheep eat the hay from the bales rather than the stalks from the ground?

    And why is the sky blue ...

  6. Julie's answers:

    1) Long enough to dry properly.
    2) There’s not always enough space in the haysheds.
    3) Because what you can’t see is all the new green shoots coming up.
    4) You asked :)
