Spot the Black Sheep

sheep.jpg

Traditionally, Mallorca was a rural society dedicated to farming and animal husbandry of mainly sheep and goats.

Sadly, with the onset of tourism this tradition seems on the way out. Manual labour is now considered too expensive to even harvest the crop from the trees, such as almonds, figs or even oranges. And you are lucky to spot a shepherd with a flock of sheep. Even luckier if you spot the occasional black sheep. I considered myself lucky to witness a small flock of sheep near the cemetery of Felanitx, the Mallorcan town where I live.

The photo was taken near Felanitx, Mallorca, Spain. The date: September 10th, 2007. The time was 19:28:31.
