Desert Bighorn Sheep Ram (Ovis canadensis nelsoni)


Desert Bighorn Sheep Ram (Ovis canadensis nelsoni)

On the way to the grocery store today, I finally was at the right place, at the right time, with camera in hand, totally on the alert and this dream opportunity came along grazing at the edge of the road....His broken horn indicates a pretty intense fight sometime in his past. He would not turn and give me an opportunity to get his full undamaged horn on the other side but heck, here he is (numbered and with a tracking collar) Endangered species.
