We were driving back from a fantastic drive up the Beartooth Highway, and came across a small herd of these sheep by the roadside. They were fairly close (allowing use of the 70-200), although as usual for this trip, the light was limited and poor. Still, this was a great opportunity to see these quite close-up. We saw them a few other times, but needed binoculars to get a glimpse, with photography being out of the question.
