Rocky Mountain Big Horn Sheep, part 2

I was fortunate to get these even though they’re not top quality. It was getting quite dark so I had to pump up my ISO plus I didn’t have a long enough zoom with me either. They sure are majestic animals. I’d much rather see wildlife in-the-wild like this than kept in a zoo.

He is a magnificent animal. You did a good job of coping with the subdued lighting.
I too like to see them free and roaming rather than penned in a zoo.

It’s great to see these sheep in the wild, and you’ve done a superb job photographing them.

I often see sheep in Spences Bridge enroute to and from Vancouver.
