Bucolic Female Alpine Ibex

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps [?]

Along our hike to "La pointe de Bellegarde" (see panoramma) we meet this Alpine Ibex that was 10-15 meters from us. It was very pleased to stay here while I was tooking my camera out of my pack and wait that I shoot him from various places. NB : I tought it was a chamois, but Catherine-A (an alpine specialist) inform me that it was a Female Alpine Ibex

Jean-Yves, vu les cornes droites, c'est une femelle bouquetin. Les chamois ont de petites cornes recourbées aux extrémités et un masque blanc sur la tête. J'aime beaucoup ces animaux. L+F. Cordialement, Catherine.

Bravos pour la photo qui est très réussie.

Je confirme ce que dit Catherine, il s'agit bien d'un bouquetin des Alpes (Capra ibex).
