I’m slowly getting back into the swing of things, which includes playing with widlife. Yesterday was the first day of snow here in Bozeman and much of Montana. Well it wasn’t really snow, it started as rain then went to slush than snow for about 3 hours than back to rain, so it did snow but just turned to slush. It got the people here on campus happy, fresh powder already accumulating. It got me thinking about these guys. I’ve spent a good deal of time watching and photographing the Bighorn Sheep here in the Rockies. I thought i would share this one with you. This was taken last spring at Bigsky, an area better known for skiing rather than sheep but that’s where they were. I always thought the big guys just liked all the turist attention. A couple weeks back i went looking for the sheep at one of my favorite haunts but they weren’t they’re yet. Much too early for them to be that low. With it being October and going into fall, the migratory birds should be moving in and out of the state. With any luck i’ll stumble across some this weekend, or anything else i can find lol.
