I was waiting outside a fox den for the kit to wake up from their nap and come out and play when a herd (pack? group?) of bighorn sheep walked right behind me.
I snapped a couple of shots not bothering to adjust exposure and they continued on their way. I turned back around to watch for foxes.
Lo & behold a few minutes later up on the ridge in front of me one by one the sheep, who had apparently circled the perimeter 180 degrees, emerged from on high to peer down at this intruder (me) in their territory. I was on sacred ground and their “hackles” were on alert.
He looked both ways…
