Sheep in the Sage

A rather large Big Horn Sheep was trying to puff himself up, and make himself look even larger, to try to scare me off.  This sheep was hanging out in Yellowstone National Park, with a few different females, so he seemed to get a bit jealous when I walked by, thinking I was trying to steal his females.

 

The Big Horn Sheep just so happened to stop in some sage brush to pose for me, and it made for a really nice photo.
