You may recall my journal and the photo Time For You To Back Off that this ewe and I have a history together. This shot was taken almost 2 years ago to the day. Similar situation – I was photographing a herd of bighorns from what I thought was a safe distance, and this female didn’t like me anywhere near her baby. She came trotting down the side of the slope to let me know personally. Not much of a warning or signs of agitation – just a quick confrontation.
