Nilgiri tahr (Hemitragus hylocrius or Nilgiritragus hylocrius) on a grassy outcrop on the western border with the Anaimalais. The image was taken with a borrowed point and shoot from about 200 meters away. It documents what seems like a growing population of these otherwise very rare ungulates in the outer Palani Hills.
