Last Saturday we went out on a hike, i was a little grumpy but my wife insisted to go out - normally it´s the other way round.

The weather was great, completely different to the forcast, so i took the 75 1.8 on my PEN-F with me, an old Olympus Macro Conversion Lens (f=40 cm) MCON-40 and the 40-150 with me.

so it took much longer than expected, but then there was a very bad smell! (later more)
a few meters on our path, i heard a little rustling just by the way - a young fox just 2 meters next to us

he came out of his hole 5-6 times, just curious to look at us, normally here the foxes are pretty shy, on that path there are only a few people during the week

then we had a little time to look around there home and were pretty surprised to find that:

it was a pretty old chamois, a fox cannot hunt it, maybe it died in an avalanche or by infirmity

later we saw a lots of them playing in the snow (bad quality - with 2x digital zoom)

2 days ago we came with some friends again the same way, but unfortunatelly the foxes were not in the mood to give us a show, but i was curious and looked with caution a little bit around the place - its a little graveyard around their caves

sorry - its a little disturbing, but i like the small butterflie on the bones, just realized at home looking at the pictures

if the weather is good this week i will maybe go there early in the morning (the problem is it takes about 1 1/2 h walk) to watch them and i only have the slow 40-150, lets see if i can get up so early
and if the horn of the chamois is still there, maybe i take it as a trophy with me ;-)

the whole day i saw about 40-50 chamois all around the place, but i only had my 45mm with me to save weight due to the very long skitour (but the 100-300 i bought recently would have been perfect - next time)
one chamois at the top of the mounting

look at the traces in the steep snow - the chamois are running around that space i would never go there by ski or even crampons

now the pictures of the died ones, behind a spoiler, could be a little disturbing (blood and bones)
