[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This posting is a young Rocky mountian sheep in Jasper National Park. He was sniffing bums and trying to make nice with the girls but they would have nothing of it.

I had posted this a few months back but deleted it almost imediatly, I didn't like the end result. I shot it with the ISO a way to high and it was very grainy. I figured out how to get some of the noise out with photoshop so now I am reposting it. It's better I think. I hope the photo police don't mind.

Hello Denis,
A fine capture of animal behaviour!
The young Rocky Mountain ram and the backside of the ewe were taken in great lighting with superb sharpness against a neutral contrasting Bg that is slightly noisy, but that's a small point in what otherwise is a fine image.
Thanks and kind regards,

Hello Denis,
Excellent photo of this scene in good sharpness and details. Beautiful natural colours in a nice contrast against the dark BG. Taken from an very good POV.

What a lovely action shot you have here, it always amazed me how you gays get the timing so perfect, nice colours and very sharp.

Hi Denis,
Boy will be boy huh? Well at least he gets to sniff it :) When I was in Jasper for a couple of days, the weather was so bad I missed most of the beautiful landscape I wanted to see.

this is a nice shot with good details and a somewhat funny shot.
