[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Desert Big Horn Sheep. While climbing on the mountain behind my home, I came upon this ram lying down on a huge rock. He subsequently got up and jumped off the rock to graze on dry grass around the snow patch. He was about 20 meters below me as I had popped over and peered from a cliff above him.
