Bighorn Sheep Herd

I captured this herd of Bighorn Sheep grazing on the flowered ground cover near Logan Pass in Glacier National Park.​ The Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep are the largest wild sheep in North America. Muscular males can weigh over 300 pounds and stand over three feet tall at the shoulder. Females are roughly half this size. Bighorn sheep are gray/brown to dark brown with white patches on their rump, muzzle, and back of legs. Winter coats are thick, double-layered and may be lighter in color. Bighorn sheep shed these dense layers in the summer.
