Bighorn Sheep on the Move When I go out hiking, I always have (at least) two camera bodies ready to shoot with. The first one is for landscape shots, and has a fairly wide-angle lens on it. The other camera has a telephoto lens. On the morning I saw this bighorn, I was happy I had my telephoto camera ready to shoot, because he didn't give me much time to get set up and get the shot. Seconds after I'd managed to get this photo, he disappeared behind the hill shown, leaving behind nothing but an empty, blue sky. #Montana #Glacier #GlacierNationalPark #Glacier_National_Park #America #USA #travel #wildlife #animal #sheep #bighorn #bighornsheep #bighorn_sheep #ram #NPS #findyourpark #nature #mountains #blue #sky www.glennlewisphotography.com
At the top of Sulfur Skyline we ran into a family of Bighorn Sheep or “Ovis canadensis canadensis” - funny thing about the convention of Latin names, it sounds all fancy, but all that means is “sheep belonging to Canada”. Bighorn sheep graze on grasses and vegetation that are available in its rugged habitat on mountain slopes. This sparse environment provides the bighorn sheep with the ability to escape potential predators, such as grizzly or black bears and wolverines (not X-men variety, I don’t think they are too preoccupied with adamantium wielding mutants). Its keen eyesight allows it to detect movement and objects up to a kilometre away, giving it time to climb up or down a steep incline to safety. It can use ledges only five centimetres wide for footholds and can jump as far as six meters (18 feet) from ledge to ledge. With this agility and balance they usually have a fairly beautiful view - as you can see for yourself.

A nice alternative to a lifesize sheep and certainly a step up from a shoulder mount. This great ram was done for friend and client @nickp2 with a custom habitat base to compliment the ram. #sugarcreek #sugarcreektaxidermy #sugarcreektaxidermystudio #wildlifeartist #albertataxidermy #taxidermy #taxidermist #sheep #sheephunting #sheeptaxidermy #bighorn #bighornsheep #bighornsheephunting #albertabighorn
We hiked the highest peak in the ruby$! 3rd time up and I did the pyramid for the 2nd time! Fun hike and a tough hike! @danielmccoy57
I had a great day in the Upper Missouri River Breaks scouting out a few spots for some sheep! My dad drew a very high profile Big Horn Sheep tag, and luckily we were able to see a few today! It was a great day in the wilderness, summed up perfectly by seeing a few of the beautiful creature’s we’ll be trying to harvest in a few months.
1. Obligatory vanity shot/ 2. Me and Dad/ 3. Lava Cliffs and snow fields/ 4. Forest Canyon and tundra/ 5. Nature/ 6. Scruffy ass big horn sheep Father Daughter Road Trip Day One: @rockymountainnationalpark We saw so many beautiful vistas and met such kind people from all over! I was surprised to learn that the ecosystem was so fragile because it’s a freaking TUNDRA! (I also did not know there was such a thing as a tundra that wasn’t snowy lol) The lava cliffs and snowfields were humbling to see and read about. The sheer realization of how long it’s taken to create these views, canyons, and peaks is difficult to wrap my head around. #myreallife #colorfulcolorado #fatherdaughterbonding #fatherdaughterroadtrip #thewestisthebest #lavacliffs #roadtripday1 #familytimeisthebest #bighornsheep #naturepictures #wildlifepics
I was assured I would see Big Horn Sheep while in Colorado....but not one was was to be found...so here’s a picture of the sign that promised them for the next 3 miles...the only BHS I saw...I guess I’ll have go back again sometime soon! #bighornsheep

Good day to run once I got moving and warmed up. For the most part the ran stayed away. Put in another 45km. #myjasper #ultramarathontraining #fatdog120training #myfeetaresore #bighornsheep #feelingmyage
Came across a few of these mountain sheep in the hills over Jasper. #mountainsheep #bighornsheep #jaspernationalpark #hiking #wildlife

You never know what you'll find in the backcountry, but on big horn peak we shouldn't have been so surprised to see a herd of 20 or more big horn sheep. I'm always a bit envious of these mountain dwelling creatures.
Desert Bighorn Sheep Ewe Blends in with the Rocky Terrain and Variegated Grasses, Scientific Name is Ovis canadensis nelson #desertlife #bighornsheep #naturalcamouflage
It was a much tougher hike than I'm used to. 😰😰😰 That and the fact I was trying to keep up to a 20 year old 😑😑😒 and we went left when we should have kept right which meant difficult vs. moderate Yikes!!!! Anyhow we made it to the treeline which gave us a gorgeous view ⛰️⛰️⛰️👍👍👍😍😍😍 Oh, and we found some friends on the drive up 🐏🐏🐏💕💕💕😉😉😉 So lucky to have this all in our backyard 🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦 . . . #canmore #canada #canadianrockies #hiking #vacation #summer #summer2018 #toooldforthis #tiredlegs #thatview #mountains #family #bighornsheep #rimwall #westwindtrail

Beaching like a boss #cruaoutdoors #livetoughsleepeasy
He is delivered and set up!! #hunting #taxidermy #bighornsheep
We were so confused as to what these were, turns out they’re juvenile big horn sheep, adults with the super curly horns were nowhere to be found. Musta been a fiesta. #partyon #bighornsheep #colorado #wildlifephotography
Going to be a great season. We have some pretty fun hunts. Caribou,sheep,LE elk,archery elk,mule deer and coues. It's going to be an epic year!!!! #hunting #muledeer #sheep #bighornsheep #couesdeer #elk #alaska #caribou #ridgereaper #epicoutdoors #phoneskopesaturday #sheepsaturday #mtnops #family

Once again we encounter wildlife on the road. These guys are residents of Sheep's Creek Canyon. You can clearly see they are wearing tracking devices. And just a few more pictures of rock formations.
Big horn sheep are totally at home scurrying up and down the alpine cliffs here at Glacier NP. Logan pass offers some spectacular views, and the opportunity to see big horn sheep (and lots of other species) in their native habitat. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #glaciernp #goglacier #nationalpark #NPS #stackhousephoto #mountains #clouds #Montana #yourshotphotographer #exploretocreate #hike #explore #summer #summervacation #bucketlist #snow #rain #glacier #liveyouradventure #wildernessculture #camplife #goexplore #nature #tepui #endlessadventure18 #bighornsheep #bighorn #wildlife #fullwrap
