Rarely, do you find an animal or bird who will totally let you into their world. This little Burrowing Owl did just that.  I was hoping to get a few good pictures before it dove down into the burrow.  Little did I know that my wife and I would give him our total attention for over two hours.

It was as if he was preforming for us.

He became one of my all-time favorites.

I love this shot of a burrowing owl. He looks like a Spanish Bull Fighter, hence the name, Conquistador.

A day with the sheep

My wife and I had been looking for bighorn sheep for the last two hours.  Finding sheep at mid-day among the rocks and boulders can be a little exasperating.  Especially when they are somewhat the same color.  We had spotted a lone ram high on the boulder strewn slope, but that was about it.  Usually there are about twenty five rams in this bachelor band but not today.  I was losing light fast, the sun dropping behind the mountain.  At about 7:00 pm as he stood up to stretch, rams started materializing out of the shadows.

The movement of the sheep had alerted the locals……    It’s not often you get two species to pose in the sane photo.

Suddenly, the  sheep were on the move, flowing down the slope.  Maybe they’re thirsty.

Who knew bighorn sheep had black tongues?
