These were taken on May 9 near Radium B.C. using a 7D with a EF70-200mm f/2.8L IS II & 2X TC

Those were great shots. Loved #1 & #4.
I've been dying to catch one of those along the hiway but no luck :oops:

Awesome action shots! I felt a little vertigo on the shot where he's headed straight down the mountainside.

So awesome! We just did a 12 day road trip thru Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho & Utah and only saw mountain goats. I was so disappointed not to see Big Horns.


Life is hard...but I just take it one photograph at a time.

I appreciate all your comments... thanks!

It was exciting to follow the rams around for an hour or so, watching them go about their business. There was a point when I had to put the camera down & retreat a bit as I was directly in their path of travel. It's always amazing to see just how fast a large animal can move. It does get the adrenaline going!

Like 4, 6 & 7. Like the action in the photos, adds to the image IMO.
