[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Ibex are some of the easiest European wild mammals to approach closely. Not shy at all. And they seem to be aware that they are protected species. They are confident that no man is even a close match when racing on rocky slopes is the name of the game.

Shot taken when surprising a herd of ibex on Mlinarica saddle between Mt Prisank and Mt Razor. Observing them how they climb has been a super relaxation after 5h of climbing on a ferrata.

Bonne prise de vue sur ce spécimen. Bravo pour ce portrait.

very nice position that teaches about its ability to live in its mountainous habitat, perfect light as well. TFS Ori

Very good catch of the Ibex Aes. He is nice and sharp, and your details are really clear to see. It is amazing how they can manage to run and jump on the rocks on the mountains and hills. Well done,
