17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Big horned sheep in Rocky Mountain National Park.

Captured after the summer solstice, this photo shows the difficulties of life above the tree line. Enough snow has melted, allowing the big horned sheep to return to their home territory and live in the environment where they thrive.
