Before dawn on the Highwood Pass

This bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis) was snacking on salt roadside and was unsure of my intentions as I drove by.  A flash was needed as the morning was still waiting for night to loosen its grip.  I was just west of the Highwood Pass on Highway 40 in Kananaskis Country – likely my last drive over this spot before it is closed for the winter.
