  1. Very clean looking ram (for summer) and wonderful background. Starting to look like you had a productive trip: lynx, moose, dall’s sheep, and even some sun. Looking forward to more.

    Thanks Milo – that was my first reaction as well – their coats were looking great for summer. It as a very productive trip, funny how some trips can be like that, and others, not so much. thanks!

    Thanks Dennis!

  4. Beautiful! He looks like he’s posing for you. Where in Denali is this? The sheep looks pretty high up and I can’t see you hiking up all that way with your camera gear.

    Jim it is restricted and challenging. I was fortunate enough to qualify for the privilege of a pro pass, and that does help a lot. I have done a lot of photography in Denali without a pass, sometimes using a mountain bike, sometimes just watching for a good opportunity like the moose / mountain or this sheep, and then getting off the bus – that really is key.

  8. Beautiful shot! Are they unafraid of humans since they are National Park born and raised? Is it normal to be able to approach so closely?

    Hi Karen. Since they are not hunted, they really do not have any fear of humans. If you sit quietly, it isn’t unusual for them to approach relatively closely.
