Bighorn sheep are named for their large, curved horns atop their heads that weigh around 14 kg on a male. Though both sexes have horns, the males are much larger, and are utilized in the headbutting battles for female’s attention during mating season. These horns advertise to females a male’s health and age since they continuously grow through his life. Their body also has double-layered skulls supported by struts and a huge tendon linking the head and spine to cushion the blows from their rival.

I am an amateur photographer living in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada.

I enjoy photographing the wonders of the world around me; whether that means capturing images of animals and wildlife, scenic natural landscapes, or man-made wonders.

I travel all over Canada in pursuit of this passion and my dream is to one day be able to do this full-time.

Thank you for your interest in my work,
Alyce Taylor
