Our photo of the day comes from Zion National Park.

Photographer loren chipman spotted this acrobat near the eastern entrance to Zion National Park. She writes, "I've been fortunate to see them around here before, but never this close. Desert Bighorn Sheep are generally smaller and lighter colored than the ones we usually see pictures of, the Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep."
