I captured this shot after a very slow (on my part) stalk and chase up a nearly vertical incline. The location was a couple miles outside Alpine, Wyoming, about 300 feet straight up from Highway 26.

what a wooly beast this goat is – I wouldn’t want him to turn around and butt me – he looks mean! Great shot and great work getting it – even if you are tired from the stalking
Thanks, Gaylene! I was worn out, by the end, but also very energized by the experience of getting to be so close to them in their natural habitat.

Fabulous capture. Well worth the chase…..great job!
Thanks, Carol! I had driven on, but my traveling companion coerced me into going back and then almost literally dragged me through the 3-foot high snow drifts that were at the lower elevation. And of course, I am very happy now to have gotten the shot.
wow… awesome capture!
BEAUTIFUL image!! Not easy to find these beauties so close up and personal……….you did a fabulous job Mitch!! :))))
Thanks, Rose! It was quite the rodeo!
