Alpine ibex

Capra ibex

Description:

Exhausted Alpine Ibex on mountain top.

Habitat:

Mountain top

Notes:

I was impressed to see this one falling asleep, head first in the cliffs. Maybe due to the weight of its horns, it's stretching his back at the same time... If you know the answer, go ahead! I wrote an article about wildlife in Switzerland if you want to see more pictures and more animals. http://www.ansermoz-photography.com/what... . I hope to be able to take photos of animals that are more rare to see, like a lynx for example. Follow me on Facebook :) https://www.facebook.com/ansermozphotogr...

It definitely sounds better than face-climbing downhill :)

In these cases I usually end up butt-climbing downhill! :-)

I'm not a rock climber :) but I guess I go to get my photos :)
Yes the way down would have been much more easier for sure!

Thank you Marta and Gilma!
In need it was high, almost 2400m. I guess he was less scared than me about the slope behind us!
I'm glad you like the serie of pictures.
