It was a treat to watch a herd of mountain goats on my most recent hike from Aspen grove on Labor day. These animals have absolutely no fear of the dangerous cliffs they navigate.

Re: Yeah!

I was able to watch this one for about an hour. The smallest bit of ledge was just fine for him.

Re: Outstanding

Thank you. I really had a great day the morning I shot this. The goats were very patient with me and did'nt mind me being close.

Nice shot! Lucky you!

Personally, I would have asked for "bah-lay" at that point....

Excellent! Aren't they amazing! While you were watching him, did he run into problems on the cliff?

Awesome pic...

For good a good photo, you need good light and composition. For a good wildlife photo, you need both of those and for the wildlife to cooperate with you. You've got all three here. Great job! - 10/10 for me!

Beautiful!

I would love to see these goats in real life, do you have any recommendation on which trails I could meet them?
