Big Horn Sheep & Knee Pads

I heard there were some big horn sheep that were coming down off the high cliffs to eat the new fresh grass in some of the small meadows. I grabbed my camera bag and headed for the area where I was told they had been seen.

On day two I found them. Wind in my face was good news but not the best of light. Overcast and threatening rain. Oh well its time to try.

FZ30 with teleconverter attached its time to go. As soon as I climbed the first ridge and got a couple of shots of where they were and looked at how I could get closer I decide anybody that is going to try and hunt wildlife had better invest in a pair of carpet layer knee pads. Just no High cover available that I could use and keep the wind in my face. Oh well it won't be the first time I had sore knees, why can't I remember knee pads when my knees aren't hurting.

Where I found them. I think there are two of them and they both look like rams.

After a few close ups and time to rest my knees and move to my right I realized there was three of them.

As good as ever Roger - particularly like the last one. Are these feral animals or notive to N. America

Good photos. I'm thinking about buying one of those gardener's knee pads that I've seen in a local gardening shop.
