How in the world did you get so close to these? I've got a shot of bighorn in NM, but while a decent shot... nowhere near as close!

jessica,
i used a 80-400mm zoom lens and i was approximately 15 yards away. they were eating beside a mountain cliff. many cars were stopping to look after i held up traffic to get these shots. people were cussing at me out their windows. i actually am quite used to that now and it doesn't even bother me. the ends justifies the means.
