I thought I might have more to say about this picture; at the time I took it, that is. The black sheep looked more menacing then than it does now. As if he was going to contest our right to go any farther. But like most bullies, gave way when we challenged. A doubly biblical image: sheep and the dead. We were on a walking tour in Sussex. Later some of the sheep became quite impertinent, when we settled down to have a churchyard lunch. Nearly snatched a sandwich out of my hand, one of them did.
