The queens of the rock

The month of November arrives and an unmistakable sound begins to be heard in the rocky chains of the Iberian Peninsula. The arrival of the cold makes the males and females of the Spanish ibex (Capra pyrenaica) go into heat. 

The large-horned males collide like titans to decide who will mate with the herds of females. The oldest and most dominant have to face other younger males who try to take their place away from them. 

In this photographic series I wanted to portray, in a minimalist way, the environment in which these animals live. Rugged rock systems in which they move with tremendous ease.
