6 Month Old Rocky Mtn Bighorn captured by Z 6II / 180-400VR

They are simply the cutest thing, Rocky Mtn Bighorn lamps. Though about six months old, this youngster was high up on a ridge above us along with the ewe band it probably grew up with. After a school bus pushed them back up the slope, they came back down to us as we had played “the game” perfectly. They accepted us as just being stupid photographers and came back down to feed. Some crashed right down the slope to the road, others meandered down at their pleasure. What a great afternoon with a piece of our wild heritage!
