Wildlife Friday

I was looking back over some photos I hadn’t processed and came across this beauty from my trip up to Mount Evans for the sunrise in my initial blog post.  I had forgotten that I had taken this photo.  I remember capturing this ewe on my iPhone and publishing it, but forgotten I had also captured it on my dSLR.  I remember I was driving back down from the top of Mt. Evans and this ewe was standing on the side of the road.  I quickly pulled over, grabbed my Canon EOS 5D Mark II which at the time only had my 50mm prime mounted.  I slowly started getting closer and taking shots before it decided I was invading its space and headed back down the side of the mountain. I’m not sure I would have gotten this close if this was big Ram.

Have a great weekend!
