WOW ! the timing was great to shoot this action
of the Bighorns battle, it must touch one to
the other hardly, i see that you where with
a fixed zoom lens Rick, if you could go back
a little to not cut the head to the one of the
foreground eating grass, but it is more easy
now to write it than to think at that moment, TFS

Good timing here Rick, I only seen an ewe and a lamb when i was there, and no males, certainly not as entertaining as these

A great scene from nature caught with natural colours and good details. Excellent timing for such an image and I think you had a lot of patience to capture it. Well done!

Yes males do crazy things for the girls, not only the bighorn males.
But maybe you should remove the girl from your picture, after all this is a story about males
Otherwise perfect moment, I can hear the sound of the horns clashing!

Hello Rick,...perfect timing!!
What a unique action packed capture, although I must admit It almost gives me a slight headache just viewing it. I can't imagine the jolt they must feel when they slam together like this. Wonderful work!!

very exciting indeed to see the battle with the heads on. Very well composed with some symetrical which is so hard to get. your moment is so right!
I like the tall dry grass in the background too, it gives a special effect.
very special moment well presented.

Ana amazing image of a ritual which has gone on for generations. Analogous to football in the US which I could never understand, but among these large mammals I have no hard time grasping why and such but rarely outside of National Geo do we get such beautiful images... the timing of the shutter click catches the raw power unleashed. Love it Rick!

I have not been here in a long while, good to see you shots again. This one is in such moment of impact, it hurts my head just looking at it and I can hear the sound of it, like two rocks collided. If I should be knit picking, I would have clone out the one in the foreground, but I understand we don't want to mess with the original as is.

What a great image, filled with lots of action and great movement that is well seen. The interaction seen between these 2 Bighorns are really great and I can also just echo what Asbed has said and that is "WOW"
Since you not have been posting on Trek Nature for such a long time, I do not know if you will see this critique or not, but I am going to write it anyway. I have decided to go back to my 1st postings here on Trek Nature and visit the members who welcomed me when I just started and ask the question, where are you and why have you disappeared, as I really, really miss all the older members to the site and you are one of them. I think I know the answer but I would love you to return to the site.
