Born to be Wild

This gorgeous Bighorn Sheep Ram was standing on guard,
while the other six rams were grazing.

Photographed below Bridge Point in Red Rocks, Nevada in April 2007.

Bighorn Sheep are very gregarious creatures. Groups of 5-10 are the most common.
However, it is not unusual to see an occasional gathering of 50 or more individuals.

Re: Love your wildlife pics!

Thank you very much Alec. Seeing animals in the mountains always makes me happy even if I don't succeed in taking their portraits, but if I do then I'm even happier ;)
Cheers, AJ

Fab photo Anya

We have the same or a similar big horn here in Exmoor UK. They like to head butt each other!

It's always a treat to see them in the Sierra Nevada.
