Bighorn Sheep

A Bighorn Sheep at the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum west of Tucson. These wonderful animals used to be very abundant in the Santa Catalina Mountains north of town, but their population has shrunk considerably with the incursion of human activity in and around the mountains.

Nice shot. That boy seems to be a real ham - strikes that pose for the camera toting tourists every day. I have a shot just like this of him!

Yeah, I like how he was standing against the shady rocks, almost smiling for the camera....
