As I was photographing the sunset, or rather the lack of one, a lone ewe wandered up the hill towards me. She stopped, looked around carefully, and then bleated a cautious baa. “The wolf’s not around, then?” Another careful look around, then a hard stare at me and another baa. “You’re sure? No wolf?”.
I checked. Harvey, our Border Terrier, was far down the hill with the pigs. You’re all right, I assured the ewe. She baa-ed. “Okay, I’ll just settle here then and enjoy the view.” Another baa. “Just tell me if the wolf comes.” I agreed and we enjoyed the lack of a sunset together.
