17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Forest of Wool

Travelling in the French Basque Country means to see a lot of sheeps in the fields, especially this time of the year. It is spring and lambs and sheeps are already looking for shadows during the day. Even though used to humans, they are quite fearful of strangers. This sheep was looking at me in a forest of wool, ready to call the alarm if I was getting too close to the herd.
