Mountain Sheep

sheep duoFriends, This young male Bighorn mountain sheep haunts the mud cliffs and clay banks of Badlands National Park in western South Dakota.  He and a smaller brother were feeding near the road in a small patch of green, our presence disturbed them and they moved up the steep cliff and waited patiently for us to pass by.  His horns will continue to grow and eventually will reach a full curl, but i think his partial curl is kind of cute.  til Tomorrow MJ
