Ibex gorge themselves at garbage bins and on available grass
The males usually flock separately from the females and young, but on this day we saw them together. However, the males kept their distance, herding together on the edge of the female and young pack.
Alpha males keep watch over females and young. They stood very still and motionless for quite a few minutes while I took this photo. (Click for full-size image.)
I love watching the Ibex graze so near. They are so peaceful and graceful.

These two were just outside our door.

When they've eaten their fill or get frightened they head back to the safety of the crater's edge.
