Yeah, we get ’em close

The photo gods smiled on us, again, today with great opportunities and light.

After a Deeeelious dinner we headed up the road to find this ewe group of Rocky Mtn Bighorn Sheep. Practicing newly learned skills, the Campers get in a position to let the sheep to get to know them and then come close on their own terms, the best way to get close because next came….

and then….

and then even closer….

Until they are literally so close we can’t shoot because the darn sheep are within six feet of us. Ah, to have such problems.
