Wild Mountain Goat, taken while climbing the Spinc, Glendalough, Co Wicklow.

On a trip to Glendalough(Glen of the two lakes) where lies an old monastic settlement, which is overlooked by steep walkways I happened upon a small herd of wild mountain goats. Taken by surprise the goat in the photograph eyeballed me and looked as though he was ready to see who's head was the hardest - his or mine! It didn't stand a chance, as us wildlife photographers are made of sterner stuff.
