"Backlit Mountain Goats"

The mountain goats (Oreamnos americanus) travel in "nursery groups." In this case, a single nanny goat was moving down the mountain with five newborn kids. An amazing sight, right as the sun was about to set. The wind was blowing all kinds of fur, dust, and rock around as this was happening. Taken in the Mt. Evans Wilderness Area, Colorado, USA.
