[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Large bighorn sheep in the Valley of Fire State Park, Nevada, near the Beehives (rocks that look like beehives).

The horns on this sheep probably measured somewhere between 165 and 175 centimeters. He was top grazing the more tender shoots on the plants in the area.

I had planned to photograph some landscapes in the area but this sheep presented himself. I had to change lenses very quickly in order to get this picture and I had to take it handheld. Fortunately it was a bright day.
