Down-Climbing Lesson
Bighorn Sheep Ewes running down the cliffs as their Lambs look on
and later followed the suit.

Photo taken above Fern Canyon in May 2007.
I spotted these animals on an otherwise uneventful, but pleasant outing to Bridge Point in Red Rocks, Nevada. They made my day.

Thank you. Yes, they blend in very well with the yellow sandstone. I think they like it that way, because I seldom see them in the red colored sections of Red Rocks.

Thanks. I love rock scrambling in Red Rocks, but my day is never complete until I see these animals ;)

Thanks Barbara. I think there are some salt deposits in that area, which make the rocks whittish in places and the grey streaks in the rocks are from water running down the cliffs when we have heavy rains.

I think the technical and scientific term (for all your photos,) is 'WOW' Your photos show the photographer has a great 'eye' for capturing the moment, with an original, artistic sensibility. Each shot is exciting for it's beauty and imagination. Keep it up! I tried to vote once, and it kept freezing. Otherwise I would give you the highest rating.
Thank ewe for posting them.

Thank you so much. I'm glad that there are people like you who appreciate wildlife shots :) I posted a bunch of landscapes and route photos too here, but they are easy to do and they never give me quite as much pleasure.

This is the best big horn shots I've seen and I've taken many shots of them myself.

Thank you for such a kind comment. I love photographing and spending time with the bighorns. I could live with them, but then my dog would miss me.
