On my recent 2 day trip to the breathtaking Plateau of Fuorcla da Rims (Google Maps) near in the canton of , , I was very lucky in coming across a and being able to focus my video camera on it in time.

To my pleasant surprise, a second chamois, to me not known to be present, enters the frame towards the end of the recording.

I always wonder where these animals get their strength from, feeding only on sparse vegetation. It is very impressive with what speed they charge the steep terrain.

The chamois ( rupicapra) is a species of goat-antelope native to mountains in Europe, including the European Alps, the Pyrenees, the Carpathians, the Tatra Mountains, the Balkans, parts of Turkey, the Caucasus, and the Apennines.

Espectacular el vídeo de las gamuzas. Me imagino el fotógrafo a unos doscientos metros conteniendo su resperación para no ser detectado por estos hermosos y ariscos animales…felicitaciones mil y muchas gracias por compartir esta bella experiencia….
