Sharing moments in time…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Peaceful

I knew that I had some photos from the last few days in Jackson Hole that would fit this challenge nicely.  This photo is a male Big Horn Sheep taken in the National Elk Refuge late in the afternoon.  He was just sort of snoozing and watching over his “flock” and not paying much attention to us pesky onlookers…

If that look doesn’t express peaceful, I don’t know what does.
