p.1 #1 · Sheepish In Jasper


Last weekend I was able to get away to the mountains for a couple days. On the way to our destination we drove through Jasper National Park, where we came upon a herd of about 40 - 50 bighorn sheep, with a mix of young and old, male and female. The group attracted a lot of attention from motorists, including me. Here are a few shots, taken at high noon (so light was not ideal). A 400mm 5.6 was used for all (I really like this lens!).

1. Youngster - this guy isn't even thinking of ewe yet





2. Young Man - a whole bunch older, but nowhere near big enough yet to take on the harem masters.





3. Getting There - I'm sure when the boys hit this age they are starting to get a bit more perky in the fall rut. Still a bit of a ways to go before they start butting heads with the big boys.





4. Well Matured Male - This one looks like he may have had a battle or two. Still not as big a set of horns as I have seen on some males, but they show a nice, full curve.





Let me know what you think after you have had a look by leaving a comment or two. It is always nice, and beneficial, to hear how others feel.

Ken, these are really good. I am partial to the third because of the great background.

Very nice set Ken and what a treat to encounter a whole herd of them.
I think the last one would be even cooler with the whole eye visible.

I like #4 and would have been better if the whole eye was in view. #3 looks a bit soft on the eye. Don

Very nice. #3 for me since it shows some of the environment, and #4 - I just seem to dig the bigger guys.
