One month, One photo: May 2013

...on the look-out...

Each year, we can observe Ibexes ( not sure about the plural form...), or mountain sheeps ("bouquetin"), going down the mountain to find fresh green grass in Champagny-le Haut. Spectacular !

  1. The English language is so full of strange contradictions!

    The plural of Ibex is still Ibex, and the plural of Sheep is still Sheep . . but how could you know that when most other animals would have an 's' on the end? Goat=Goats, Cow=Cows, Horse=Horses, Dogs, Cats, Rabbits, Birds . . but not Sheep (and not Ibex)!!

    Great picture of him on the steep slope (is that snow?)

    1. I have forgotten it for "sheep"...English courses are so far now...thank you for the correction ! French language is quite complex too, you can ask to my children!!

      You're right about the snow: it remains some mostly in the summits and on the northern side of the mountains. Winter was very generous this year and even last week, it snowed again!
