That's quite good for that lens. I've taken lots of shots of these on the cliffs, but few as clearly defined as these.Grin

One of your best Sandy, great composition with lots of detail. I love the way the sheep appear to merge with the rocks - good camouflage. Grin

Typical goat behaviour, SandySmile

If it is climbable, then they will climb it.

A friend of mine from years ago, had a goat to keep the grass down.
It was always getting onto the roof of the carGrin

The one in the foreground shows just how sure footed these bighorn sheep are, you have to wonder how he got there, more important, where does he go from there! A wonderful capture Sandy, you were so lucky!

They seem able to stand on a vertical wall on one foot, or so it seems.
