A nubian ibex runs across a cliff in southern Israel, unmoved by his maddeningly majestic background. Only we are not immune to the purple-hued mountains that seem like part of a watercolor painting.

There are only 1,200 of this type of ibex, which live in mountainous regions and eat grasses and leaves. Interestingly, nubian ibexes organize themselves into all-male and all-female herds.
