I don't have many because I didn't see a lot while there.  I did happen to catch 8 or 10 Aoudad sheep behind the motel on Indian Head Road.

Please share what you have.

I did get some pics of mule deer but they're all facing away from me so I haven't posted any.  I also got some black-tailed jackrabbits but low light and photos are so-so.  This guy was standing right on the edge of the road down my Santa Elena Canyon.  It was getting dark and I had to set my ISO around 2000 to get a decent shot.  Not a great shot but cool to see this old bull standing there about 20 feet away just looking at me.

It's good to know that someone is seeing some.  My trip was kind of dry.

TXLJ,

Was the horned toad in BiBE?  One of the things at the top of my bucket list is to show my kids a horned toad.

As I child I played with them all the time at my grandparents shop in Sanderson.

All those shots are just north of the park near Hen Egg.

Nice photos, Willy.  The diamondback is at the top of my list with cougar and bear following.

Thanks for sharing, bad knees.  The bear shot is priceless.  What kind of deer is that?  He looks awful small to be a muley.

Rattler looks like he's digesting something big.

Can anyone help me identify this butterfly that I photographed in Big Bend last week?  Thanks.
