Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep, a pictorial

I took these a few weeks ago on a trip through Jasper National Park. Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep are frequently seen through the snowfields in the mountains. In winter they are often seen licking salt applied to the roads so caution must be taken in areas where they frequent to avoid killing them.

I know all the rules about keeping blog posts short plus I realize how annoying real long blog posts are, but I hope you’ll forgive me for making this one a tad on the long side — so I hope you enjoy them anyway. I was losing light with some of these, especially this next pair, but I think they still show some nice detail. I’ll be doing a lot of (catch-up) posting beginning this week with the majority of the images being my personal photos, with a few client photos tossed in here and there this month.

This is an impressive series of the magnificent animals. I like the close up shots with all that detail. I also liked the shots that gave an idea of the setting they were in. And….your posts are never too long! 🙂

Oh, I love these pictures! No mountains around here, so no rocky mountain bighorn sheep in these parts! 😉 Their horns are so amazing – they give the sheep a very regal & majestic look 🙂
