Gathering Photo Challenge

Today’s photo challenge is “gathering”. I went back to my archive and fished out a picture from 2009 but I’m sure it could have been taken at any time in the past 2,000 years or more.

This series of shots was taken in the Pyrenees, beyond the Col de la Core pass in the Ariège, a place famous for being one of the passages for refugees to Spain during WWII. From afar you can hardly see anything.

Getting even closer, the flock can be seen but not the weird positions …

Get even closer and you will see how they are piled on each other in search of a cool patch of grass in the Summer heat.
