Description

I spent about an hour photographing this Bighorn lamb attempt to scale the cliff to reach the adult female on the ridge above. The lamb repeatedly sprinted and leaped as far up the cliff as possible and then just as repeatedly failed to make the climb to the top. The lamb then turned, paused for a second, and then leaped off the cliff to the safe area below. After about an hour of these frustrating attempts, the lamb wandered down the ridge line to a group of adults feeding below.
