Good size Mountain Sheep ram came to attention as I apparently overstepped – maybe 1 step too close – and invaded his personal space. Close enough, I snapped off a few and moved away so he could continue his winter meal. Shot taken in Yellowstone National Park just North of Tower Junction. (Wyoming, USA)
