I’m in Yellowstone. One of the things I like about it is you never know what you’ll see next. It reminds me of that line in Forrest Gump when he quotes his mom: “Life was like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re gonna get.” I don’t know of a better place to photograph wild mammals in the United States than here.
One of my favorite animals to photograph (and simply observe) here is the bighorn sheep. This ram was using this big rock to scratch himself. He started with his right side; then he did his left side, as you can see here; and finished by with his hindquarters. If you look closely you can see the hair he left behind on the rock.
