Bighorn sheep in Wyoming by Nancy Elwood

Pro photographer Nancy Elwood traveled to Cody, Wyoming, last winter to take photos of bighorn sheep. The animals were in their rutting period and these two were battling it out. "It was -12 degrees F most of the days, but it was well worth it!" the Florida resident writes. Elwood used a Nikon D300 and a 70-300mm lens.
