Was hiking through Rockie Mountains and stumbled on a heard of Big Horn Sheep. Got as close as I could with them they were pretty jittery. But I had never seen one up until this point. Was about 10 yards away from them

Not an animal we see every day, Paul, and the setting is wonderful. I like the bits of trees framing the left side of the picture and the lovely blue sky. You have achieved a good sense of height here, and the sheep are well positioned in the frame, with space in front of them. This has the potential to be an excellent image, but one thing lets it down for me, and that is the head of the sheep in the front, which is lacking in detail, probably due to it moving at the time of shooting, as it looks like it is eating the leaves of the bush. It is also shadowed by its own horn. But well done for capturing them.
Pamela.

Thank you. This was tricky because the sheep were very aware of me and were very skirmish. And yes the one took a bite and moved its head just as I took the picture. Though I really like the shot.
