2021—Best Sheep Day Ever!

The Bighorn Sheep were waiting for us Friday morning when we drove up Old Yellowstone Road. And what a day of sheep photography! For me it was the best day with Bighorn Sheep I’ve ever experienced. We played the game and they responded. The Big Boys, the rams with huge curls, joined in the fun, evening approaching us on the road so close I had to give up my 500mm lens for my 70-200 at one point. I carried the smaller lens with my Nikon Z50 on a strap on my shoulder so I wouldn’t miss any opportunities for a photograph. This is one of the Big Boys following the scent of one of the ewes who was playing hard to get. The dusting of snow on the ground from the previous day’s storm made the perfect background.
