HOOFED MAMMALS: Bighorn Sheep Stories-III

One of the things I love about Bighorn Sheep and Mountain Goats is their ability to scale high rocky cliffs. I love photos like the one below. Now of course, it isn't a great photo. However, you get a great idea of the terrain that these animals call home. In the first one there is a Bighorn ewe in the middle of the
photo just at the skyline:

In the next photo, I have zoomed in so you can get a little better look:

Both photos were taken with a 400mm super telephoto lens. You can appreciate the fact that trying to get close to this particular ewe would be difficult if not impossible. It makes you appreciate it when you able able to find one this close as I did in Western Montana:
