13th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
The Nilgiri Tahr in Kerala, India.
This Nilgiri Tahr (usually called 'mountain goat') was being chased for a snap by a tourist when it bumped into me and kind of posed for a portrait. The moment was a bit confusing for me as well as for the Tahr. We both paused and stopped, but I was quicker enough to focus on him for a straight view. The Thars live on the mountains of Munnar in Kerala, south India and do not come out into roads like this often.
