Photograph was taken at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum in Tucson Arizona of a Big Horn Sheep. The world-famous museum is rather a zoo displaying the creatures of the surrounding desert in their natural habitats. Located in the middle of the Sonoran desert about a half an hour drive from Tucson, it also provides breathtaking views of the surrounding mountain ranges.

    Very majestic indeed. You have captured this so well! The contrast with the earthy colours and his majestic horns is wonderful. He looks almost real. Congratulations on your feature, very well deserved.
