Dall Sheep Mother and Lamb

Dall Sheep Mother and Lamb, Anchorage, AlaskaOn my Alaska trip I had hoped to photograph a few Dall rams by hiking high up into their mountainous range. No luck. I did, however, get to see a few ewes with lambs grazing at lower altitudes along the Seward Highway just south of Anchorage. These guys are Alaska’s version of the bighorn sheep that we have in the lower 48. The look almost identical, except that dall sheep are a bit smaller and have pure white coats.

    It’s always special when one gets an opportunity to photograph a mom & her child. It must have been a delight to see this pair in the viewfinder, Sean.
