Maginot chamois babas
Thought I would post up an ever so slightly clearer picture of chamois taken in the Alpes Maritimes this summer. It is no exaggeration that I had to creep through a trench of the former Maginot line in order to capture this image, which as you could imagine was pretty exciting. The goat-antelopes were pretty timid and disappeared after a few seconds. It seems that even major wartime fortifications are not enough for me to display decent field craft.
It was great to see you last week Graham. What is more, our Mammalogging fieldtrip provided a mammoth list of 2 species if my memory serves correct. Three if you are still counting sheep!
