Imagine how thick that silky fur is to keep the magnificent mountain goat warm in its cold world of snow, ice, bitter winds and alpine crags. With the slightest breeze, the fur dances in the breeze. Canon 7D, ISO 250, f10, 1/1250, focal length 600mm, RAW, Canon 600mm f4 lens; near Alpine, Wyoming, USA. Don’t you love the muddy knees?
