They definitely seem to be up to something: Look at the sarcasm on the instigator's face and the way her accumplice is listening so closely to the instructions!
My two lambs are sisters. The boss is always calling out to their mama, "maaaa" and the submissive one follows her around.
They just love to eat anything BUT the weeds - they eat rose bushes, roses, my trees, my cactae...the little rascals attacked my sister's alloe vera and left practically no signs of its existence!
But, they're funny and friendly and always eager to hang around me when I'm gardening.

It must have taken me around 10 minutes to finally get this photo uploaded. I had to reduce its size from 800 to 690 - having done this in portions of 10 pixels at a time...

PHOTOFILTRE: Cropped-B&Wened the BG because the colors were too pale and the sheep didn't stand out enough-Auto contrast-Sharpened-Framed

Wishing all a lovely evening/morning/afternoon...!

Hi Lurdes,
What a beautiful PP work! The B&W conversion is so appropriated on the background, here! I like much this composition well titled and thought. Very good colors and textures on the wool. Two young fellows who must laugh expense their master, indeed! :) Bravo! Annie

LOL!!!! Excellent story with a wonderful image to go along.
Excellent sharpness and details.
The weeds probably taste awful :-).

Hi Lurdes,
Great shot of these two rascals! I've often thought of having sheep to keep the weeds down but I know they'll eat everything else in sight!! Good sharpness and details and I love the story that goes with it. Well done and TFS
Cheers Tina :-)

Hello Lurdes,
Sheep look alike wherever in the world!
Cute, but maybe a tad silly too...
These two guys are well framed and nicely presented for your viewers!

Hi Lurdes,
Nice pets indeed, at one point you got us quite worried about them as I remember. I tend to keep carnivore pets (cats) so as to minimize their impact on the garden.

Hello Lurdes
Excellent composure with great details very crisp I really like this POV alot well done on PP and composition,

TFS Kyle

Nice story Lurdes,
very funny and interesting!
Ciao, SAVA

Hi Lurdes,
Great to receive an update on your sisters-in-crime. Beautiful result after those resize failures - I hate it when that happens.
B&W does work so no problem there.
Have a nice weekend,
