Big Horn Sheep


I was able to take some photos of a herd of about sixteen Big Horn Sheep yesterday that were lounging in the sun...a little lamb.
 

 
 About thirty from a herd near the Park have died after contracting pneumonia from domestic sheep. I was extremely happy to see how healthy this herd looked.   


A little one with an itch.
 

 
Always thought what a privilege I have to interact with such wildlife.

Enjoying a stretch...there are actually three sheep in this photo.

  1. Great shots and so wonderful to see them in person.
    I love the second one with the focus more on one.

  3. You live in a wonderful place to be so close to nature. I think it must be a daily reminder of how special a world it is. Thank you for sharing.
