Black Sheep

Photograph by Paul Kipping

This Month in Photo of the Day: Your Photos

I left the highway to make a photo of the sunset that day. I then encountered this curious flock of sheep with the single black example taking its position prominently mid-front and staring at me. A few moments later they all lost interest and went on their way.

Paul, I am a writer and  I was wondering if I could use your photo for a book cover. Joe Sweeney

Used as markers there is one black sheep for every one hundred white sheep.
