Big Horn Sheep In The Badlands (#651)

First they appeared at a distance, high up on a rocky crag.  I thought, this may be the only photo I get.

Then, slowly, one by one, these wonderful big horn sheep began to make their descent.

They were hungry and the sweet grasses were right in front of me.

While some of them grazed, others kept a look out.  Any sudden move on my part and they would scatter back up into the hills.

I knew my place and kept a safe distance; grateful they allowed me to just be there….for a while.

    They are very majestic. Great pictures. That last picture looks like he has a tracking device around his neck. It was nice they were patient with you.

  2. I love these kind of encounters with wild things. They leave a blessing with you, I find. At the moment, just here at home in a small village in northern Holland, I keep watch on a gorgeous falcon pair. Once in awhile one of them will stay poised in the tree when I pass by. If I stop to look through the camera or binoculars, he usually takes off. But the times he stays and we look eye to eye from only a few yards (he’s looking down, I’m looking up 🙂 ) are awesome. Enjoy your continued adventures. cheers, Sarah

    • How wonderful, Sarah ~ thank you so much for sharing that. I am a visual person and saw every detail of your story in my mind’s eye.
      I met someone from Holland this week and thought of you.
