Wow, it's the last day of July already! Where does the time go? We wait so long for summer to be here and then it's gone so fast.
So I have been saying that I got close up photos of Big Horn Sheep while in the Badlands of South Dakota. We were driving along a road that was supposed to be good for viewing various types of wildlife and saw a couple of people taking photos of something on the hills. I got out to see what it was and saw it was a Big Horn. While heading back to the car for a bigger lens people driving by told me just a bit down the road there were more and better, people are nice like that sometimes. Sure enough, there was quite the group of them all over the hills. I got this image of a female and 4 kids relaxing. I was amazed how they blend into the background, I'm sure it's protection against predators. I used this image for my Black & White project today because the theme was Living Things and in that form they seem to blend even more. You can see the B&W version by going to the link in the About Me Section on the right hand page of the Blog if you like. Also, you may notice the radio collar on the female. Several sheep had these so the park could track their movements and habits within the park.
