Mountain Goat – Leap of Faith

For this Mountain Goat it seemed but a simple “leap of faith” to span the distance from one rocky ledge to the other.  I had been following a small goat herd pretty much since the sun had come up when the group of shaggy beasts moved from grazing on grasses and forbs to a rocky outcropping.  This one paused briefly on the right ledge and I just had a sense it was negotiating the jump … CLICK!  The capture was made with a 180mm f2.8 Nikkor lens.
