This photo was taken on Thursday 15th of August, in Julian Alps. It's located in Slovenia.
This is chamois (rupicapra rupicapra). I had to take this photo quickly, because mother or father of the baby animal watched us not friendly :).
About our trek.
We left Krakow (Poland) at 1.30 on Thursday. We reached Aljazev Dom (1002m) in Vrata Valley in Slovenia about 12.30. Then we started our trek. About 18.30 we reached Triglavski Dom na Kredarici (2515) where we have slept. On Friday we woke up at 5.00, and after six we started to attack our goal summit of Triglav (2864m). We reached it after about 1,5 hours. Then we went down do the valley and started at 18.30 our way back to Poland. We reached Krakow about 3.30 on Saturday.
Incredible experience. Beautiful Julian Alps and national mountain of Slovenia - Triglav!!
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
The Julian Alps (Slovene: Julijske Alpe, Italian: Alpi Giulie) are a mountain range of the Southern Limestone Alps that stretches from northeastern Italy to Slovenia, where they rise to 2,864 m at Mount Triglav. They are named after Julius Caesar, who founded the municipium of Cividale del Friuli at the foot of the mountains. A large part of the Julian Alps is included in Triglav National Park.
Triglav (German: Terglau, Italian: Tricorno) is with its elevation of 2,864 metres (9,396 ft) the highest mountain in Slovenia and the highest peak of the Julian Alps. The mountain is the preeminent symbol of the Slovene nation. It is the centerpiece of Triglav National Park, Slovenia's only national park.

Hello Maciej,
Even though you took this shot in a hurry it turned out great. Love the innocent look on it's cute little face. I hope Mom and Dad didn't mind sharing their youngster with us for just a quick photo shoot.
