I can't believe that we saw more bighorn sheep, and this time it's a herd! We were on the Cog Railway on the way back down from Pike's Peak and getting fogged in from a thunderstorm overhead. The train engineer was kind enough to stop, but by the time he did, their behinds were facing us. This female bighorn sheep decided to turn and look at us mid-chew during her grazing and snatched this photo.
Loved seeing all the amazing wildlife so close-up to be able to get these shots. I usually photograph using the manual setting and finding the correct setting quick enough is difficult when wildlife doesn't always cooperate. I can't believe how many different wildlife shots I've seen and photographed - elk, marmot, red-tailed hawk, coyote, and, of course, bighorn sheep! What a privilege to be able to see God's creation with all its intrinsic beauty and diversity!
