Lucky Video Action Shot of two Chamois (Rupicapra rupicapra)



On my recent 2 day hiking trip to the breathtaking Plateau of Fuorcla da Rims (Google Maps) near Scuol in the canton of Grisons, Switzerland, I was very lucky in coming across a chamois 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.
