This group of rams found a perfect place to be, safe even from photgraphers getting great shots. Morning sun at their back and no way of safely getting on the other side of them.

The herd of Ewes I found were in a better direction but the distance was much further. They had some lambs with them but they stayed lower in the ravine in tall grass.

Nice find on these Bighorns Steve. Sure, a better sun position would have helped the pic, but just finding these many young rams together is pretty special. Are these in the Badlands? I've never found this many young rams together. Love the wide open country. A nice place to be with a camera.:)

Terry, the rams were in the South Dakota badlands, about 12 miles South of Wall, the ewes were a mile or so West of them. This is the most rams I've found together and felt quite lucky to have seen them this close. It was a special sight for me and may be more rare than I thought after reading your comments.
