2019—The Joy of the Moment

The Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep we’ve been photographing near Dubois, Wyoming have been putting on quite the show for us this past week.  Friday morning, ten rams made their way down the cliffside and onto the meadow near us to graze.  Shortly afterwards, the ewes arrived along with a couple of young rams.  About twenty of them gamboled gleefully about, leaping into the air with such abandon that the older rams stood and gaped at their playfulness. Almost as quickly as they arrived, they reversed course and raced back across the field to forage away from the rams.  I captured one young ram and one ewe as they leapt over the bunch grass and sage.  They appeared to be acting out of pure joy in the moment.
