Very good photo.
Yes, they are supposed to be rather timid. Unfortunately the mountains goats in this area aren’t anymore. Down where people camp, the goats come roaming through looking for stuff to eat. They especially look for salt sources, namely any place where you urinate. They will stand around, waiting and watching for you to pee, then they will go and lick it up. That’s what these goats were doing. I counted 19 goats in and around our campsite one morning.
...creauture! Interesting composition!
light in this photo, the goat looks almost translucent. I guess these goats are for the U.S. mountains what the the chamois is in the Alps (they are not goats but antelopes).
It looks like he posed for the picture. Great shot!
Yeah, that's what I thought. After I took the picture he walked (scrambled) off.
