Most of these bighorn sheep were spotted at Glen Eyrie, a conference center in Colorado Springs with a very scenic canyon for hiking on weekdays only. I was heading for the trail when I stopped to scan the parking lot and happened to notice people staring up a cliff. I went over to them and my heart jumped for joy as I saw about eight handsome sheep walking about and lounging half way up the cliff. I knew a herd lived in the area, but I didn't expect to see them so close by. My 300mm zoom and the full late morning sun were perfect for capturing their details.
