    Nice sighting of the only mountain goat of the South in the open.Healthy adult male.The grizzled patch on the back is clear.Its eyes evince emotion.A little space the front could have been better.Nice documentation.Thanks for sharing.SaktiWild

    Lovely pose. Hardly a decade ago, they used to be extremely shy creatures, but today are close to domestication. Nice details, and maybe a round of sharpening would help. Would have been even better if you had a little more space at the bottom to include the hoofs. Thanks for sharing.

    regards

    Nice image Sankar. Agree with the previous comments. It looks as if the tahr is walking on the road. Supposedly shy creatures,human contact has reduced their charm a bit. Thanks for sharing.

    Nice.Did u try a vertical shankar sab? Looks a little high on brightness to me. Agree on sharpness and more space at the bottom.

    I agree with the previous comments. I agree about more space at the bottom as suggested by Shaktipadaji and also vertical composition as suggested by Roopak.

    A researcher started feeding them with salt and made them habituated. So only one group in Eravikulam is used to humans. Others run away.

    Cheers,
