Courses in Great
Paradise National Park

Just back from Italy, I have pleasure in presenting some new pictures
taken during my stay in the park. Circumstances obliged me to climb between
2500 and 2700 meters to find herds of ibex and chamois : spring was early that year...
As June is the breeding season for both species, the new-borns had to follow
their mothers to these heights on mountainous rocks. I had to take the greatest
care in approaching the young herds, in order not to endanger their lives.
