Unbelievable how animals can disappear and reappear in a wilderness situation. So well adapted to their habitat.
Very educational work...

Great capture of this Mountain Goat. It looks as if he just came out and purposely posed for you. Love the scenery and the colours are wonderful.
This is a one of a kind photo that I'm sure you will always treasure. TFS

You have really managed to convey the vastness of the habitat in this shot. Great composition and pose.
Hi Evelynn, beautiful colour and textures in this shot of your King, and after looking at the workshop, I am just blown away. You have one awesome lens there. The composition is beautiful as a scenery given the green brush mixing with that rock. Billy is a fine complement to this scene. Awesome!
Hi again Evelynn
...and you kept this in your archive for that long??? :))
Wow! It really is a stunning shot!
The contrast here between the goat and pretty much everything else is terrific and one can see it even from the thumbnail!
The details are also great (especially considering the light conditions, focal length and shutter speed...even though you used a tripod). The pose is indeed majestic and you were very luck he kept it long enough for you to set up your equipment.
The colors and exposure are spot-on and another very nice thing is that the high ISO produced hardly any noise...i don't see any anyway :)
Also, jeez that's a huge distance (talking about the WS here)...phew.
All-in-all: magnificent work!
Bravo and TFS

This is such an original picture! Thanks for the reference in WS, it helps us to situate the action. I like the fact that the animal is far and the title you gave this picture which is most appropriated :) He stands like a mini King all right! Those places where you camp are amazing! I have to visit your part of the country someday. Well done and thanks,

Nice pose, a great capture and technically satisfactory under extreme conditions. Looks like you beat the billy goat's bluff and got the shot anyway. ;)

This is an amazing crop/shot from the distance seen in the WS!
Deffinately one of those "Where they live shots" with fine composition, and detail considering the distance. The pose really helped make the shot a keeper.
I like these kind of photos, where there is more than only a wild animal in the composition. This just gives a much better impression of the habitat.
I find the photo a bit heavy on the contrast, especially in the shadow areas.
