Here Sheepy Sheep

January 17, 2017  •  5 Comments

The first wildlife finds of our trip home.   We spent quite a bit of time photographing these guys (they are terribly used to people) and I was very proud of the dogs as not a one of them barked.   So afterwards we went over to the campground across the road and let them run for a bit.  Was windy and the wind chill was bad to didn't run too long!

I have a boatload of shots of these bighorn sheep so I'll try to just show you some of my favorites and you can always go to the Wildlife Collection/Mammals/Big Horn Sheep gallery to see the others.   The babies were adorable and the boys are still somewhat in breeding mode.  Of course I missed the ONE head butt we saw.  :(

This one below is definitely one of my favorites of the bunch!  I am thrilled I had my depth of field set right!  
Doesn't that collar just look like a pain in the neck?   The light was just perfect on this girl when she stopped.

THE END!

Beautiful!! :) I agree the collar looks bad but I guess those studies help the species:)

Wow, those are great shots of the sheep! You must've been able to get really close - or have a really good lens!

Was that some sort of tracking collar? It does look awful. I saw something similar on a swan which I hated to see
