Banff Attractions

Horned Gypsies – Banff, Alberta

WHY WE CHOSE IT
We chose Julius Reque’s arresting photo because it shows the wildlife of Banff National Park in its natural habitat and allows us to see how these majestic bighorn sheep look up close. Of course, we don’t recommend getting this close to wildlife just to snap a photo—wild animals are unpredictable and you never know how they will react—but thanks to a zoom lens, “Horned Gypsies” reminds us of the beauty of nature and the species that inhabit the world around us.
