I can't help but wonder why they are hanging out in a little cave when there's no weather threat present. Could something have frightened them? They are such free-ranging, rock-climbing beasties that I would think they could easily escape any threat by "going vertical!"

They get back in the caves when it's hot, it was 93 when I took those pictures.

Nobody get's shot on this ranch. Curly Bill and the boys are about a mile away hiding in a high basin.

To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

The caves look a lot like Caprock cave around Lubbock, Slayton, and Post area. Part of the old Sea bed from years ago. Great pictures with your camera, Thanks cheers
