Battering Ram & Thunderstorm

It looks like this old guy has been in a lot of battles




After a couple of hours of waiting three rams showed up and I got off a few bursts. I looked west of the cliffs area where I was and saw this thunderstorm moving in so I decided it was time to head back to the camera wagon. This photo is looking back at the storm as it gets closer to the cliffs.

Great capture of the ram, Roger! Looks like those horns could be a good advertisement for headache meds!

Thanks for sharing!

Nice shots of the ram, Roger!!

This ram is not quite full curl, correct??..

Are there any full curl older rams in your area??..

I rember reading Jack O'Connor's stories in Outdoor Life Magazine when I was a kid growing up..As I rember it he & his wife really liked hunting the various species of mountain sheep..I've always thought that the Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep is perhaps North America's most spectacular big game animal..

The magnificence of these animals as well as their wariness, makes me appreciate your shots!!..

How long do you have to sit still untill they show up??..

Are you ambushing them in a fixed position that they visit regularily??..

Or do you glass to locate them, & stalk to get into position??..

You are fortunate to live where there is so much wildlife to photograph!!

Congratulations, Bruce

Hi Roger,

I really like the ram also. It looks like he was looking at you more than the grass -- very intimidating!

Not a criticism, but I would have liked to see this one shot from around ground level instead of from the higher angle. I think that it would have made for an outrageous shot. . . but putting yourself in that position might not have bee prudent. . .:-)
