Rejected Ram


This is another short piece from my recent trip to the Badlands. The purpose of the trip was to capture big horn rut activity and this is the closest I came to it. The iconic shot of big rams charging each other is a rare occurrence and most of the time the "bumps" are like this. It is also clear the ewe is not ready and is leading the rams around. She would stop to urinate, the rams would check it, then joust for dominance.


  1. Love your commentary. What a commentary on life of males and females.
    Of course the other display of 'comical' sexuality are the sharptail dances at the Barrens in April.
    does the human scenario occur at local bars??? HAH!
    thanks as always Dale!
