Bighorn Sheep

We have been surprised by the quantity of large animals we have seen so far– bighorn sheep, black bears and moose. We have seen bighorn sheep close to the road and flocks of them high up on the mountainside. These are not small animals– they can weigh up to 300 lbs. with horns weighing up to 30 lbs. alone!

I took this photograph today in Glacier National Park, Montana through the sunroof of our car. I used a Nikon Z5 camera using a NIKKOR Z 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 VR S lens (1/320 sec at ƒ/5.3, ISO 900, 280mm). I edited and cropped the image in Adobe Lightroom.
