Went bird hunting this morning. Didn't take any birds, but I'm awfully glad that I brought my camera along:

I sat very still, the small herd of bighorns walked right to me because I happened to be in their line of travel. Very lucky. They didn't mind me sitting there quietly.

That's awesome Guy. That is one of the animals I would love to get a decent photo of. We don't seem to have too many here in Georgia and I have only see a very few when I happen to go where they live. Mountain goat is another but I have yet to get to see one of those.

I'm going to have to make more of an effort to photograph mountain goats... I've seen them, been fairly close a few times, but haven't taken a good photo of one yet.

The bighorns are actually pretty easy for me to photograph. Quite a few live within 25 miles of my home, and at some times of the year, like now, they're pretty easy to find. Sometimes too easy, a nice ram was hit by a car within the past couple of weeks. I'm sure he's one that I have photographed before. Phooey.

The bighorns also tend to be pretty good about letting me get close enough for good photos - UNLESS I have that danged crazy bird dog with me... Sigh... They don't like him much. Looks too much like a predator I'd guess.

I like this battered warrior, have seen him many times:
