Romeo and Juliet
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Alternate title: "The Bride Stripped Bare By Her Bachelor"|
molting fur at this time of year, this exceptional trophy Bighorn Ram is wooing the female at the Calgary Zoo.
A close-up view of the same ram, posted earlier, was disallowed (sorry to the guys who critiqued it) because I had also posted a close crop of the head on TL here.
The Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep. While I had encountered these on numerous occasions in the wild here, this speciment has exceptionally large horns, the curl extending well around the eyes, a real trophy ram! Only flaw (not visible in either picture) is that the right horn tip was broken off.
Cropped from a larger view, slight rotation, levels and curves, downsized.
