Photo Of The Day By Gene Putney

Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Smile” by Gene Putney. Location: Waterton Canyon, Colorado.

“Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep are one of my favorite animals to photograph during their rut,” says Putney. “On this cold and snowy October day, the activity was good for a variety of photography opportunities. This ram caught my attention as he was doing the flehmen response/lip curl that added an interesting touch for his portrait.”
