  Andy lived high in the Rocky Mountains.He hunted(打猎) wild animals there.He also took other men hunting.That was his work.

  One day a letter brought Andy a new job.This job changed both his feeling about animals and his way of hunting.The letter said: "I want to write a story about bighorn sheep.I need pictures to go with my story.Will you get pictures of the sheep for me?"

  Andy' s two sons wanted their father to take the job."We will help you !" they said.Bighorn sheep are very wild.Andy knew it would be hard to get pictures."But why not try?" they said.

  For days, Andy and his sons tried to get pictures.They did not want the sheep to hear them or see them, so they walked softly.They hid behind rocks, but the sheep always ran away.

  Then one day, Andy and his sons walked around a big rock.They met some sheep face to face.But the sheep didn' t run ! "Now I know why the sheep run away," Andy said."They run because we come up behind them.From now on,—— we will stay where they can see us."

  The next day, Andy saw some sheep fight out in the open.He and his sons walked toward them.The men did not try to hide, but they did walk slowly.They knew that any fast move will frighten them away.

  "Don' t look fight at the sheep," Andy said."Wild animals do not like to be looked at.They will run away." The men looked off to this side and to that side, but they walked closer and closer.And soon they were close enough to get good clear pictures.
