21st Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Five curious sheep

Five curious sheep watch intently as the sun sets behind them casting a warm glow around their edges in the Peak District National Park, England, UK. On a walk across this ancient landscape, sheep normally rush away as you approach, but not these inquisitive animals. They stand lined up, staring straight at the camera, creating an idyllic rural scene that captures the essence of the picturesque Peak District. As visitors flock to the national park in search of scenic landscapes and wildlife encounters, this photograph serves as a perfect reminder of the natural beauty and diversity on offer.
