Re: Gorgeous animal

Thank you Dean.
They do carry themselves in a truly majestic and proud way and are some of my favorite mountain animals.

Great wildlife photography!

I really like seeing these animals. Saw quite a few when I hiked down to the bottom of the Grand Canyon in the early 1990's. There's also a large herd in the Santa Catalina Mtns. near Tucson, AZ. Yes,GREAT shot of a magnificent animal! Thank you very much!!!

Re: Great wildlife photography!

Thank you. He was standing motionless in a basin below Blanca Peak and loked like a monument. I had a feeling that I was being watched and looked around and spotted him. Later I managed to get closer. This was actually my one and only encounter with a bighorn sheep in the Colorado Rockies. In Nevada I see them all the time in Red Rocks and Lake Mead areas. They always make my day.

Re: Great addition

Thank you. I've always loved animals. I can just watch them for hours. Photographing them is my fairly new hobby. Cheers!
