Those sheep are from a relatively small herd near Temuka, on the east coast of the South Island.

Sheep pattern: Those sheep lined up in a big queue when the farmer arrived at the paddock, near Castle Hill (on the Arthurs Pass Road), close to Lake Lyndon.

Staring into the camera at Little River on Banks Peninsula.

Get your portrait taken ;-)

The two in the middle were like members of a show dance group, acted and smiled simultaneously. Ok, they could not move very far away.

Assessing the risk of staying on site when a sheep-o-maniac like me is staring...

Members of a multi-cultural herd near Culverdon, between Waipara and Hanmer Springs.

A personal word: Better you are the black sheep of the family or the office than to be boring.
