    Apropos of exactly nothing, here is a mountain goat doing a pirouette

    I don't know why these things happen either...

    Maybe he is really Pan. Thanks for the smile.

    P.S. My ballerina says it's closer to a Pas de Chat than a pirouette.

    That is awesome! What a great catch.

    I'm sure there's a Far Side cartoon in there somewhere...

    Why do dads always 'act the goat' and embarrass their 'kids' in public?

    That is cute. The goats were adorable, in their own fuzzy, brillo-pad like fur. That thing was rearin up and as soon as they crossed the road they concentrated on eating and moving up the mountain.

    I would wager that Monty Python jokes are pretty much easy fodder for pop culture references. :-)

    I can't figure them out either













    I think they try to "Strike a Pose" as soon as they see a camera.

    Nice capture

    Way cool picture. He probably knew that world famous photog Anthony Sloan was taking his picture and wanted to show off his dancing skills. Or, maybe he was wanting to impress the female goats?
