I went back to see if I could get more photos of Bighorn Sheep today. They were where I hoped they would be, the light was some better and I got a few more photos. I also got some sequences of them butting heads, I will post them later.

That's a cool shot showing them all interacting.

The Bighorn sheep are in the rut now, and it is somewhat peculiar how the rams interact. They will go up to each other (like the 3 rams that are grouped up) and it could easily be confused for affection, but it seems to be more of way to instigate a contest of dominance. Meanwhile, the ewes and lambs go about their business as usual, until a ram gets a little too aggressive.
