Bighorn Sheep ram eyeing me while I filmed the rut.

This large Bighorn sheep ram was rutting in the Absaroka Mountains. This rams live on National Forest and come out of the high country down to the valley in December to rut. He was eyeing me as I filmed him rutting. His expressive eyes say it all.
