Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep

No, this is NOT Victoria. It's another image from my recent vacation. These Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep (Ovis canadensis canadensis) were part of a group of about a dozen that I saw on a back road leading up into the Ashnola River Valley. I've seen these wild sheep in this area before but never at such a low altitude. Nor were they disturbed by my presence, seeming to be very hungrily cropping the first green sprouts on this hillside.

I've tried to shoot Bighorns in Colorado...usually they spook...hard to get a great shot like this. Nice photo!
