absolutely superb image - you can feel the conditions but the sheep manages to look cozy (in a forlorn way!) well presented too.

Fantastic image, Robin-Lee. Well seen with great clarity and detail. Adorable face, and it's nice to know her big wool coat is keeping her warm. Congratulations on this very well deserved POTD!

Almost has more resemblence to a snowball rather than a sheep. Nice capture Robin-Lee! Very clever title also! Happy New Year!
Kumiko Parkinson commented on December 31, 2008 08:04:
Is her wool coat warm enough?? Hope so! Wonderful "still life" here, beautiful details, beautiful snow! Congratulations, Robin-Lee!

That's an amazing bundle of warm (cold?) wool! Great capture, Robin-Lee, and Happy New Year to you!
Patrice Cigallio Wesa commented on December 31, 2008 16:37:
Now this is one furry lamb who certainly looks ready for the cold winter weather. I love the expression and all the snowballs both on the lamb and on the ground beside it. What a terrific and awesome winner, Robin-Lee!
sue anne rush commented on December 31, 2008 18:34:
Beautiful and the sheep looks cold and determined.
Tom Briggs commented on December 31, 2008 18:37:
I love this photo, Robin-Lee. I am not sure if the sheep is too impressed with the conditions. Great capture and congratulations on your POTD.
Linn Smith commented on December 31, 2008 20:54:
A very strong and powerful portrait of this intriguing animal...the snowed in look gives it added emphasis and appeal. How lucky it has such a warm coat to deal with the elements! Congratulations on an excellent win today, Robin-Lee!
Robin-Lee Vieira commented on December 31, 2008 21:48:
Thank you so much Ray, Joyce, Patrice, Sue anne, Tom & Linn!! This was just one of a flock. When I stopped by the road and walked to the fence, this one came right over..I was instantly wanting to bring it home! A happy 2009 to all!!
William wrosenthal commented on December 31, 2008 21:52:
It's clear why that animal needs all that wool! Still, it is an iconic image of the extremes of weather and it 'feels' very cold. Nice job and congratulations.
