Nice photos, tjeml. My wife and I were in NM, CO, UT, AZ, WY, and SD a couple of weeks ago visiting their national parks. We seen some small sheep in the SD Bad Lands but nothing with horns like yours. It would have made our day to see and photo this one. Congratulations on photographing him. With your luck, I think you should buy a lottery ticket.
When we saw the ram we pulled over and got out. we walked a way toward him until we could get some good pictures. My camera is a Cannon 160 I S with a pretty good zoom. I got within 50 yards of it the wind was in my favor.
My son-in-law is a Master Sergeant in the Air Force and my daughter and him stopped by Sunday for lunch before they headed for Tucson where they will be stationed now. I sent them a copy of your post and they loved the pictures. I have never been to Arizona but the wife and I are planning to fly out to see next spring. They were looking at houses and I love the rock and dirt yard. I need that here as I am already mowed out this year and it is early.
Lots of sand and gravel in Arizona. We go to Quartzsite in January for about 9 days every year, Takes some of the bite out of our winter. Those pictures were taken last January. Most days we were there last January the highs were in the mid 70's, nice weather.
