Default A morning with some Bighorn sheep

This morning I came across a few bighorn sheep on the way out into the Park ... it's been a good week for wildlife sightings.

That is the one animal that I would have liked to seen but didn't, on our recent trip out west.

Being a city girl, I'm always fascinated by large animals like these. I'd sit for hours watching the Pronghorn on my visits to Arizona for school. Great photos!

Another batch of great photos, Dave. The third one reminds me of a woman who nearly became my mother in law, many years ago. She looked down her nose at me the exact same way.

Their little heart shaped faces are the sweetest. Beautiful photography.
