Rocky. Mountain Big Horn
I have a confession: I haven't seen any of the Rocky movies; go ahead, let me have it. Have you seen any of them?
I really wanted to photograph a bear on this trip, though I think most had retreated higher into the mountains by the time I was out there. And when you're looking for bears while driving on the highway, everything becomes a bear: tree bears, bush bears, rock bears; alas... no bears.
I caught this beauty chillin' with a flock of other big horns; this particular one walked right up to the side of my car and stopped, cocked its head, and then stared right at me...
And stayed there, for at least 10 seconds, locking gazes with me; posing while I took its portrait, annoyed that another tourist has interrupted its day; and me wondering how I'd explain to the rental agency why there are ram horn prints in the side of my door.
