The ibex in summer

Description

In summer, the ibex climb to a high altitude to seek out the cool. Grouped by sex, the males spend most of the day resting in the shade of a rock and are only active in the evening or in the morning, when they enjoy feeding in the cool air. The females, known as “étagnes”, devote their time to raising their young on often steep cliffs, such as those located on the left bank of the descent of the Col de la Masse. If you have a set of binoculars, you can undoubtedly see the females lying on the grassy ledges, while the kids frolic without a thought for the woodpeckers flying around them.
