    Default Among the Rocks

    I caught this group of Bighorns just as they were cautiously beginning to come down the mountainside. They would stop and take a few mouthfuls of food and slowly chew it while watching the country below and then come down another 30-40 feet only to repeat the process.

    Lens: DZ 50-200mm + EC-14 at 283mm
    Shutter speed: 1/320

    Very nice, though I think I'd be inclined to crop out the 3rd head.

    Thank you. Bighorn sheep have been very elusive for me for several years so I devoted three days from my last expedition to capturing some and was rewarded with these images.

    Thank you. Actually, I never considered cropping. Too much nice background color and detail would be lost. I did consider cloning to remove the head, but finally decided against it since it gives the sense that there are other sheep and activity going on outside and to the right of the frame, as there in fact was. Helps me with the sense of three dimensional.

    Nicely caught and exposed EB. I agree with you EB. The third head adds to the overall image. I do find myself wondering just how many more there are comming behind the two in the photo and what your eyes were actually seeing.

    Thank you. I don't remember the exact number of sheep in this band, but there was something like 10-12 following along in ones and twos.
