This is great, Gil! You sure got a good photo for hand-held and that far away!! When I go out to the full 48X zoom on my camera I couldn't get a picture worth looking at to save my soul. Even half the way out is terrible. You really did a great job!!

Thank you very much for your great comment Gary.
If we were that way, then we could watch both rear view mirrors!

That two headed moster can look both ways at the same time.

Great capture Gil, love this! You wouldn't want
to see my shot from that distance without a tripod :)

Thank you very much for your nice comment Sharon.

Thank you all for viewing & commenting on my Big Rams. Two heads are better than one! Sure looks like a 2 headed animal including the fact that there is only 4 legs showing in this photo.

Great posing job they done for me!

Thank you very much Barb, & Duane for your nice comments.
Duane, This is one of the very long distance shots. I also could barely make them out, and only because I know that area so well, something didn't appear quite right while looking for more animals. I saw a couple of specks, of which I first just thought a couple small bushes or trees, but I looked again thinking I didn't remember seeing those objects, so I quickly snapped a pic and zoomed up on my camera screen. Saw what it was, and then thought, I wish I had brought my tripod along. It had been in the car until 2 days before when I took it out cause I needed the room in there. Well anyway, you know me, I hate using tripods anyway.

The next day I did see those 5 that hang around together, a lot closer to the gorge, but these shots were better anyway, as the closer shots mostly not looking towards me.
