My Blog

I try to post photos on a regular basis on my blog. It’s sometimes just one photo, and sometimes several on one subject. The subjects depend on where I am and what I am working on. Come back and visit often or subscribe to get an email whenever I post something new.

Valley of Fire: Bighorn Sheep

Minutes after we arrived in the Valley of Fire, we found a group of Bighorn Sheep on the rocks, just by the visitor center. I think they feel safe there because mountain lions would be shy about getting so close to people. They were high on the rocks, and the lighting was terrible, but still, it was very cool! You definitely need to click on each photo to view it in Lightbox to see cute details. You’ll notice the tongue sticking out of the baby’s mouth - first photo, and the tip of a nose or a horn peeking out from behind a rock - second and third photos; hint: there are seven of them in the second photo and five in the third one. The one scratching his ear in the fourth photo cracks me up!
