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.
