Big Horn Sheep:
Both the male and female big horn sheep possess impressive horns, but this female's young offspring will likely develop the full spiraling horns for sparring combat in years to come. For now, he is enjoying the gregarious nature of the females grazing in the mountains among large boulders which they traverse with grace at all ages. This picture was taken with a telephoto lens, as they are almost invisible camouflaged against the steep mountains.
