The Blue Sheep a.k.a Bharal on the guard

We were driving to Nubra via Khardungla. As we ascended the ghat to Khardungla we saw the prayer flags swag with the high altitude winds. It was just then that Hemant Baliwala shouted- "Hey! are those mountain goats?". I peeped out and there they were, walking on the exposed high altitude rocks. And the largest herd of Bharal I have ever seen, adults and young guarded by females. To lead them was a ram who proudly stood on a high rock watching his herd. We ran out of our car with our cameras to click them. While I stood with my 150-600 mm lens photographing the goats, tourists vehicles stopped one after the other only to admire my big lens and not the uncommon goats.
