Sheep shot, silent conversation

A few days ago I walked with Lisen up in the nature reserve next to my apartment building. In this nature reserve, called Ekebacken (in Lyckeby, Sweden), is a fenced in area where sheep roam every summer. An area you are allowed to walk through. So when Lisen and I approached it I saw that this years sheep herd had arrived.

Usually sheep run away, or move at least, when they see Lisen coming. But not this time. Well, when they first saw us they started to get up and was about to move. But then they stopped, turned around and looked at us instead. And I felt this connection between us, like they knew we weren't dangerous. Everyone was so calm, including Lisen. So we just stared at each other for a little while before me and Lisen slowly walked away.

And I love moments like this! Interaction with nature and life. Not a word was spoken, but yet so much was said. Beautiful! :-)
