something very iconic, perhaps even biblical about the second image. Absolutely love the light and the detail..
On the last image, I want a crop at the shoulders or so, knocking the butt out - gorgeous light giving us those beautiful backlight edges. The bark pun was cute - whimsical, but the other two have something more.

Thank you so much, Piet! I don't know how the bull feels about cropping his manhood, but you may be onto something:

All three are beautiful. Simple. Simply beautiful. (OK)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

All of them are fun and well done. The second one is a classic, the two guys duking it out or pretending to for the impact it may have on the locals.Biblical, indeed, as Piet says, and before. Every set of critters has its rituals of establishing dominance. The birds do the same, with their posturing and squabbling.

I keep looking for the cartoon balloon that says Bark in the first and have so many questions about the second. The third! S-

The pun is that the background is tree bark :) Questions about my sheep? Ask away! You're usually not shy with questions, Steve :|
