Sheep, Big Ones

Look at what I spent time watching.  An hour or more of photographing flew by like nothing.  I am so taken with these beasts, perhaps because they are sheep, they are wild and I don't get to see them where I live.


Bighorn Sheep

Their winter grazing grounds is in the lower elevation of the Custer National Forest which butts up against a mining site.  I have traveled up here before and not seen a single sheep, this time I saw two bands.

  1. They look like they Wintered well. Were there no rams with the band?

    1. Yes, a ram was present. Had to pick a couple photos from a couple hundred, just happened the ram isn't in these two. They look better than the deer do in these parts. The deer had a rough year I guess.

    1. It was lovely to have the time to watch and take photos. Had the dogs with me and they were pretty interested too - but for an entirely different reason.

    1. Not for certain, no. My best guess would be April - June. There is a few of last years young with this group.
