I am not the only one who contemplates sunsets and gets back home late.

Getting comfortable for the sunset, I was hoping that the alpine ibex I saw before would come on this ridge. My wish became reality.

Alpine ibexes are plentiful in the Massif du Vercors. It is easy to see them.

Kind of a wild goat, the alpine ibex lives in the mountains all around Grenoble. It can be seen easily in the Massif du Vercors.

Can you see its umbilical cord ? This chamois is very very young. Less than one week maybe.

At the end of this day, two alpine ibexes met at the top. To contemplate the colours of the sunset ? Who know !
