This evening, I am posting a couple of images of black sheep which were taken locally, near Glasgow. For some reason the local farmer focuses on this niche breed. There is another small flock in an adjacent field but the animals were too far away for a descent image. Intriguingly, I saw a black sheep with a white lamb! Note presence of white sheep in above image. (I am considering getting a camera with a long lens in order to get some interesting distance shots as I tour and travel around.)
