Bighorn Sheep in Grand Canyon

This bighorn sheep watched us raft down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon from a low cliff. We saw surprisingly few mammals on the trip, so spotting one posing was a treat.

Jeanne! This is awesome. Did you get your picture to be this color with photoshop or is the actual color you photographed? Either way, it is stunning. I jsut can't get over the color, and look how he posed for you. Love it!

Thanks for visiting my blog! I changed to a different template after reading this post at Between Naps on the Porch... scroll to the bottom part. http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/2009/06/welcome-to-21st-metamorphosis-monday.html
I don't resize my photos the way she describes. I am on a Mac and I export photos from iPhoto or Photoshop Elements with a maximum dimension of 640 pixels... I think that is the largest width the Minima Stretch template will handle. Hope that helps!
