While out photographing the mountains and desert wildflowers east of Phoenix last weekend, I heard some rocks tumble. Looking in that direction, I saw what I thought was a deer several hundred yards away. Pointing my telephoto lens in that direction, I could see the round white butt of a bighorn sheep. So I abandoned the canyon shots and went in pursuit of the three desert bighorn sheep.
Sometimes I do the same thing and point my telephoto cell phone out the window. Amazing how much the country in Arizona and Montana look so similar...

Shrapnel-sometimes Edward Weston photography close to the road is a good thing. AZ does have some Rockies just south of Flagstaff and also in eastern AZ. Texczech- the desert sheephave shorter hair on their coats. Looks like the one ewe bedded in some mud of poop. Arizona has received some very good rains this winter. 1' - at first i thought the larger ewe may be a young ram due to the horn length, but images from below showed no nutsack.
