Bighorn sheep!

She said "Jimmy pull over" with such urgency in her voice that under normal conditions I would think she was having a coronary. But this was not normal; we were in the Valley of Fire. I quickly pulled over to the side of the road and she pointed to the mountain top.  I saw a beautiful Bighorn and quickly grabbed my camera, thankful that the 70-210 was already attached, and no sooner started shooting when something spooked it and it bolted out of view, but I was glad that I had captured what I got.  I'm processing this image a week later when I realized this cloud that looks for all the world to me like a cat.  I have been concentrating so strongly on the mountain goat that I never really saw that before.  Just another day in the Valley of Fire!
