[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
Despite its name, this likeable animal belongs to bovidae family. It's an extraordinary climber, one never get tired of seeing them move on the rocks. Fortunately, it's quite easy to see them, as they generally remain above tree limit. They can be found up to 4,000m, sometimes higher.
They wear a heavy coat (in fact two layers) which helps them to withstand very low temperatures of their habitat. They live in Rocky Mountains, from NW USA mainland to SW Alaska Some animals can be foud in Colorado.
Glacier National Park is likely one of the best places to watch them.
I have closer pictures, but for the first one, it can be interested to submit the animal in its environment.

I realized upon returning home that the goat was exactly centered in the frame. I tried different crops but I liked nothing. So too bad, I despise the composition rules!
