This is one of the new mountain goat kids, born about 2-3 weeks ago. Because he’s so young, he spends most of his time around mom. Fortunately, his mother is pretty experienced in raising kids and doesn’t get too upset when he wanders off.
Despite his young age, he’s already very comfortable running around and playing on very steep slopes.
I do like the diagonal elements in the composition – I usually try not to have the horizon bisect the subject, but in this case I wasn’t able to get a different angle and decided to include it.
