Fun Friday: No Egg on My Face … Just Snow!

Bighorn Sheep ewe, with snow on the face

This Bighorn ewe had a bit of snow on her face after eating some snow. The Platte River, which lies just a few feet behind her, was frozen, so her and the other sheep would eat snow for moisture intake. And when not eating snow, they would forage in the snowy areas for grasses.

Photographic Equipment Used:

  • Canon 5D Mark 3 body
  • Canon EF 100mm-400mm, f/4.5-f/5.6 IS lens + Canon 1.4x TC (shot at 200mm)
  • Handheld, with IS “On”
  • ISO 1600
  • Aperture f/8
  • Shutter 1/500 sec.
