Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Sheep Jam” by Peter Sabin. Location: Glacier National Park, Montana.
“This picture is the result of learning a lesson the hard way,” explains Sabin. “I missed a picture of a Grizzly on a back road in Montana because my camera was in the back seat. Now I keep my camera ready and close at hand while traveling.
“A few months later, I was stopped for a traffic jam on the Going To The Sun Road in Glacier. Most traffic jams in the park are caused by tourists, but this jam was caused by bighorn sheep walking the road in the uphill lane while I was headed down. With my camera ready on the seat beside me, all I had to do was roll down my window and snap the picture of the sheep five feet away.”
