Thanks so much for all your comments. I always forget I have this photo here and then I get an email to say there's a new comment. Glad it's had some 'awww's' and such. :)

Hi Dave! Please can you add the scientific name (Ovis aries) so that we can take this off of the "unknown" list & add a link (wikipedia etc) to the references. Because we have a global user base & sometimes many different common names for the same species, the system will continue to show a spotting as unidentified until the scientific name has been completed.
