The chamois
Rupicapra rupicapra (Lat)
Le chamois (Fr)

It is a goat-antelope species native to mountains in Europe (The chamois has also been introduced to the South Island of New Zealand). The English name is from the French chamois. Chamois live at moderately high altitudes. A fully grown chamois reaches weighs about 50 kilograms (110 lb). Both males and females have short, straightish horns which are hooked backwards near the tip. Chamois leather is very smooth and absorbent and was favored in cleaning and polishing because it produces no streaking. Chamois are strictly protected animals.

Only PP work: slight increase of levels.

Bonjour Jean Marie,
Une image si naturelle d'un chamois au repos..entouré de fines herbes, un peu comme au paradis. Image touchante et si paisible.
Bravo pour cette excellente image.
