Well done, it's been awhile since I was in Alaska and chasing the Dall sheep and I know it was tough getting close to them.


Don't even begin to think I'm criticizing your images.
Just a natural curiosity.

Thank you,

Actually it was surprisingly easy. These sheep live near a small community and are quite comfortable with human presence if you do not make any threatening moves. The crops on the photos are pretty minimal.

Most enjoyable to view your bighorn photos. Getting out in that country to photograph them has to be a lot of fun. Well done!ߙ
