Jasper and Bannf National Parks are renowned for their wild life and the extraordinary beautiful landscapes.
The distances between the different sites are quite huge and as you are driving your car, you will expect that you will not have the chance to meet any wild animal. Surprinsingly, it is not the case, asthe animal walk sometimes on the road. Here, near jasper, a dozen of bighorns were eating grass on the side of the road. Curious, and maybe expecting some food, this one put his head on my car, and waited a few seconds. Amazing !
Certainly not a very good picture from a technical and artistic point of view, but i like it.
Your comments are appreciated as always.

What a face, how could you resist those pleading eyes.
It's not technically perfect, but for a grabbed shot, it's certainly better thanyour average snap

Just look at those big brown eyes!
Besides the adorable eyes, I like that we can see oncoming traffic stopped; it adds to the picture.
As far as being technically perfect; well, its not. But, good for you for having your camera at the ready in this instance.

A typical scene in the Canadian Rockies. Rams, sheep and mountain goats by the road waiting for people to extend their hand so they lick it.
Nice picture with good colours.

Maybe it is a typical scene for Alberta, but this is something completely unusual for Ontario... Great capture in every aspect. Well done

nice picture, I like the expression of this animal. The details of the road and scenery is also nice.

Interesting picture, and must also be interesting to find a bighorn like this in front of your car! But I disagree with you, it is a good picture considering the technical aspect, sharp and clear.
