I'm not an expert, but maybe yes looking well.

Re: This one

It's difficult, since judging from the big horns it seems simply a (fat) male.
Females can be recognized because of the very shorter (and not bent) horns.

Re: Beautiful!

Thank you very much Anya. As you know in that area it's impossible not seeing animals and you can make a lot of photos.
Have nice Easter holidays!

Re: Bellissimo !

Thank you very much. In any case, it was very easy considering the high number of animals living there.

Maybe easy to take but you did it great! Fantastic shot.
He (or she, but Livioz states that's male- I have no idea:)) looks like posing to the photo. Every steinbock poses while taking a picture of him? Are they curious?

Re: Sweet

No, they are not curious and are not interested in hikers. You can turn around them to find the best picture, not disturbing their activities (eating).

He's beautiful!

I remember so well all the Steinböcke I saw when I was myself in that area in 1986!
