The elu­sive bighorn sheep (Ovis canaden­sis), cap­tured on film near Jasper, Al­berta. Photo by con­test en­trant Brad Mcblain

This Rocky Moun­tain bighorn was cap­tured on film by pho­tog­ra­pher Brad Mcblain near Jasper, Al­berta. Be­cause they are so ag­ile — they bound up a steep in­cline rather than walk or climb—and thanks to their amaz­ingly acute eye­sight with which they can sur­vey the dis­tant sur­round­ings and see preda­tors from more than a kilo­me­tre away, th­ese sheep are very elu­sive. Like many im­ages in the mag­a­zine, this was orig­i­nally sub­mit­ted to the Cana­dian Wildlife Fed­er­a­tion photo con­test. Visit to en­ter monthly and an­nual com­pe­ti­tions.
