Tahr Talk

The Himalayan Tahr is a relative of the goat, native to the Himalayas and is on the near threatened list. This photo was taken at a quirky roadside establishment called the Bushmans Centre in Pukekura New Zealand. Tahrs are an introduced species to NZ. I took three consecutive pictures of this one and laughingly, it appeared that he was talking to me when I moved through them, like a flipbook.
