Bighorn Rut Photography Safari: November 20-23, 2018

Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep and their dramatic, and often violent, mating rituals will be the focus of this multi-day photo expedition, but other wildlife and scenic opportunities are sure to present themselves as well.  Join one of our talented naturalists on this unique safari which will include a day of wildlife photography in Grand Teton National Park as well as two days photographing bighorns during the peak of their rut.  Even though this safari will take you into some truly wild Rocky Mountain country, it is still high-end and all-inclusive.  You will receive as much or as little guidance in nature photography as you would like.
