As it turns out, this was the early stages of posturing for these two Bighorn Rams. A moment later, they clashed in a magnificent exhibition of head butting.

Not really sure how many people will take the time to figure this shot out and if my previous moose shot is any indication, I'll be faulted for not including the full set of horns in the composition.

On the other hand, I may be wrong and the shot will earn a decent score. I hope it does as it really is kinda cool.

Wow, congrats. I thought for sure you would ribbon with this. I think you would have if most people would have figured out what they were looking at. Excellent job.

I like the textures in this shot. it actually reminds me of one of my recent shots in the "Fill the frame" challenge. great composition. THe biggest downside for me is it seems awfully oversharpened. 8

Great use of texture and line. The point of view isn't anything very unique but this is still a beautiful shot

nice capture, love the sharpness and texture on the horns. I like the composition. At first i didn't notice it, but the top seems a little blown out, but still, great picture
