Sheep

Whenever I drive to Auckland I always think about the traffic in the city before I leave and plan my trip to avoid traffic congestion.  Even if I don't have to worry about getting somewhere on time, I still resent any time spent sitting in traffic in the city.  When it happens I try to tell myself not to be like my father whose hatred for traffic (and traffic lights) was often a source of amusement to his offspring.  

On the other hand it doesn't matter one iota has long I have sit behind a flock or sheep or heard of cows on a rural road.  It is always a pleasant experience for me.  Of course, it helps if my camera is handy and I have time to fire off a quick shot out the car window. 


These sheep know the drill and mainly stick to the road as they are moved from paddock to paddock.  The roadside fences are there but don't seem necessary.



They are pretty important when the flock reach their destination.

  1. I like sheep despite their having only two goals in life. One to eat and the other to commit suicide.

  2. We all have our priorities when it come to waiting. I also have a short patience when it comes to traffic.

  3. The sheep know they get to fresh grazing if they follow the leaders. Fine sheep photos.

  4. Traffic is the only thing, i believe, that could make this teetotaler into a drinking woman. If i lived without a schedule, i'd enjoy sitting behind the sheep, too.

  8. When Wendy and Martin used to live on Lewis Wendy used to get quite animated about the 'traffic hold-up' that used to occur on her 1 mile drive to work where there was a single track bridge. Sometimes it could run into minutes. I could never understand why she just would not travel a few minutes later or earlier to avoid it.
