Yes, one of the only times I have seen the big rams down in an accessible area. Was neat to see them grazing on the sagebrush. And since they are pretty protected in the area there by/in the park they are not too concerned with you. Especially since it is winter and a slower time of the year.

Lucky you! This is great.

Yes it always makes my day when I happen upon chance wildlife and I feel very blessed.

You have just got to get the right day and I am sure it will happen. Thanks for your visit and comments. I have to come back to your gallery when I have more time. Just followed your pouncing coyote photo from another site. I am sure you have lots of other great shots as I see your name often on P.

Oh, I did not see another pouncing coyote - just saw your photo in some one else's comment session as I was visiting their site.

I often get distracted and wonder around at random. But you discover all kind of nice things that way.

Sorry about the confusion. I often talk in half sentences and realize later that things can be misinterpreted.

What a magnificent animal, its a wonder how it can carry such a huge weight on its head.

I have enjoyed my visit through your pages JF.

I bet he has some pretty strong neck muscles. And in the fall they fight each other and ram their heads together with great crashes - talk about a headache!

I am glad you enjoyed your visit - I appreciate all the time you have spent perusing my gallery. Hopefully in the next couple days I will have a little time for a visit to check out your gallery.

how close were you able to get to the bighorn? It doesn't look like you used much of a zoom. Nice capture.

joyfotos on September 6, 2009

You are right wasn't a lot of zoom. I was in within a few feet. Since they mostly live within the park they seem to be pretty tolerant of people & since it was in the winter they were more interested in eating.
