Default Ooooops...

Dall Sheep ewe. You don't see them make a mistake very often, and when you do, you aren't ready for it. Well I was ready for it, and just as she did the face plant, the focus racked all the way out and I didn't get it. However this shot was taken just as she started her face plant. I think she was fooled that the snow was a lot deeper in that drift and the hole a lot deeper than she planned. You can see the start of the stumble on the last photo.

The light has been just awful here for nearly the last month. Today was no exception. Snow, very low sun angles at this latitude, etc. Really hard to get a sharp focus and no noise.

Wow, great series, Jim. I'm sure a mistake like this could be deadly.

Great series and great timing! Good thing she made it where she did, eh?
