18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
A lone sheep on a road in Ireland

This is a photo of a lone sheep on the side of the road in Ireland. This photo was taken in April of 2019 while driving on a quiet side road in Ireland. This scene immediately caught my eye and I asked my husband to slowly stop the car so I could pull out my phone to take the picture. We did not want to disturb the sheep so we slowly rolled the window up and drove away as quietly as possible. It is common for sheep to roam the many beautiful landscapes in Ireland and they can be seen almost everywhere you go. This photo was taken on a Samsung Galaxy S9.
