Ouch...I can't imagine how hard this Ram had to head butt another to break a horn. I guess that what they do to win over the girls.
Nice portrait, lighting, composition and details. He's a real beauty, hope I can say that about a guy.

Although this Bighorn has a broken horn, it still remains a beautiful animal. I like the close approach you have here, as it gives us the opportunity to see its lovely details from closely. The texture on the horn, the fur and the V shaped nose is well seen and is really striking. I also like the direct eye contact it has with you. A great portrait. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Wow, what eye contact, Rick!
Who won the staring contest?
A wonderful full front POV of this amazing bighorn.
His horns tell us he has been around the corner once or twice.
A very sharp and well exposed image.

I always said you had a way with animals. Pretty funny that the Ranger reprimanded you. This Bighorn is still beautiful even with the broken horn. It gives him a very distinguished look. This close-up shows us such fine details of his face and horn. I love the colors, shadings and natural setting.
