Road Trip Fun Capturing Cute New Zealand Sheep

To many people New Zealand and sheep go hand-in-hand. It is true that sheep outnumber the locals by a wide margin. Due to the abundance of these cute creatures I made it a point in my New Zealand road-tripping to capture them whenever I had the chance.

I thought I’d share some larger versions of photos I took in my original New Zealand sheep post, plus some additional ones. Awwwwwwe indeed!

I captured all of these by just pulling off on to the side of the road. I didn’t get too close or cross onto someones property. To get a closer look, a New Zealand sheep farm is something I should look into visiting sometime down the road.

Do you have any memorable moments capturing animals randomly in your travels?

  1. Most farms in NZ are far away from the main road actually but mostly cows and sheeps roamed around too far from where they should be 🙂 always there’s a greener pastures on the other side of the fence or something…

      That makes sense. Have seen cows that were literally on the side of the road (in the middle of nowhere) moving about just like you would expect a walker/biker. 🙂

  2. I also loved the New Zealand sheep! And New Zealand in general really. It’s an insanely beautiful country with more diversity than I’ve ever seen in one place. You see a Redwood Forest one minute then what looks like the rolling hills of England another minute then a black sandy beach, and on and on. I’d love to go back and explore the South Island since I went to the North Island when I went.

      Have seen more of the South Island. It is just like the north in terms of going from one terrain to the next in the blink of an eye. That’s one of things that makes New Zealand what it is. Rainforest, waterfalls to rolling hills and countryside just like that!

  3. Gotta make it to New Zealand on of these days. 😉

    Wales is equally full of sheep, although I didn’t really snap any photos when I last visited. My most memorable animal photo op was at an alpaca farm in Oregon last year, great fun 🙂

      That’s what I heard about Wales. Cool beans. I don’t believe I have ever seen an Alpaca before. Glad you had a blast. They are cute too having seen pictures of them.
