Dall Sheep Portrait

This photo is of a Dall Sheep Ewe from Lake Clark National Park. We were able to stalk a group of them and silently get incredibly close. As soon as the Sheep poked its head above the ridge line, I began to shoot away. I especially love the detail of the eye in this photo and the black flies buzzing around its head.
