On one of my trips to Valley of Fire State Park, I was fortunate enough to come across a herd of bighorn sheep.  They weren’t too fond of my presence at first, but I kept a slow methodical pace to follow them.  This made for a lot of butt shots in the beginning, and eventually my patience rewarded me with the shots I was hoping for.

These 2 (above) stayed together most of the time, which made me think they were partners.  My entire time following the herd was about an hour, and one couple was never close.  I’m assuming this was the alpha male of the herd and his partner (below).  I was under his watchful eyes all the while.
