Big Horn Sheep

Posted in Nature, Photography, Wildlife by leahyetter on January 26, 2011

One creature out here that I hope to get really close to one day is the big horn sheep.

Patrick spotted these guys on our drive through the canyon.

That’s a young ram(male) at the top and a ewe(female) at the bottom of the image above.

They were staring me down, taunting me to climb up there to them. I do hope to get up close someday.

But they are sheep and are most of the time too high up on the side of a mountain for my taste. I was just fortunate to have them in the sunlight here.
