Great shots. That's the one animal I did not see in my travels in and around Southern Utah or the Colorado Rockies. Well composed and nice and sharp!

Excellent shots! I had the very good fortune to see bighorn sheep when I visited Zion National Park in December of last year. I was pleased with my photos, but I think yours are better.

Excellent shots and so sharp. Well so sharp, yet I can still imagine how soft their fur must be. Did you do a subtle 'realistic' HDR effect to acheive that or ? What type of lens was that.

Hmmph. Love the pictures, really nicely done. You are NOT helping my LBA, that lens is on my high priority list.

Very sharp and detailed, lovely subdued tones, and great captures of both the personalities and the behaviors!
