Bighorn sheep rams walking away

The Horn Section When the weather is warmer in the Anza Borrego Desert State Park, the Bighorn sheep will come down the mountain to drink at the pupfish pond at the Palm Canyon trailhead. I took several photographs of the rams, however, as they started to walk away to head up the mountain, I took the opportunity to take this unique shot.
