Big Horn Sheep- the Ram

Posted in Nature, Photography, Wildlife by leahyetter on October 3, 2011

Whenever we drive highway 34, my face is glued to (or hanging out of) the window looking for big horn sheep. I’ve seen rams in the wild before, but they are always so far away. But at the Game and Fish, a few of them have a cozy home and a lot of land to roam. And I was lucky enough to capture some shots of them on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

I am so fascinated by these creatures. I could stare at them all day long. They were curious and didn’t scatter when I got close to the fence, giving us time to enjoy our little photo shoot.
 


Winter Huddle

Posted in cuddly, Photography, Stormy Skies, Winter by leahyetter on December 29, 2010

We are bracing for a winter storm, not unlike what the northeast is experiencing right now. Well, maybe not that bad but we are expecting below zero temps with the wind chill.

I wish I had a winter woolly coat like these gals.

I know what they are thinking. “Good luck lady, you’re going to be cold!”

While I was walking away they were whispering and I felt them laughing at me.

Well ladies, at least I get to hang out by the wood burning stove.

But really, I would love to huddle up with them when the wind starts to blow.
