It certainly does not appear to be a well-groomed goat (judged by the scruffy hair)...LOL.
Were you that close or did you use a zoom?

Thanks for posting.

Yeah, he was an old goat, and I was pretty close. If I had used the zoom then you could have seen the scar on his shoulder where he fell once;) Thanks for the comment:)

He is a tough guy! Those massive shoulders must have climbed a lot of cliffs:) Thanks for the comment.

goats are fantastic, they almost remind me to the Yeti, Ibexes here in the alps are very different.
Great shots!

Thank you! I just followed this herd of 18 goats around up on the ridgeline and they kept posing for great shots! It was a photographer's paradise, complete with the backdrop of the Olympic Mtns:)

Thanks for the comment:) Yeah, it was in the early morning, just after sunrise, and this old patriarch was rambling around with the herd enjoying the Olympic high country. I was just happy to get him in an action shot with the mtns behind him.

Thanks for the comment. Well, I'd say that right now this area is under a good 10 feet of snow, atleast. This was taken in July of last year, late July, 26th. Thanks for stopping by:)

Thanks. It was a moment I thought, at the time, was not what I had wanted to capture. He turned away just when I was going to get his face. Appreciate the comment.
