Photographic workshop on the Spanish Ibex heat in Sierra de Gredos
The excursion is focused on watching and photographing the heat of the Spanish Ibext. In an incomparable setting such as the Sierra de Gredos, which is possibly the best location on the peninsula for this, we can enjoy the show that these animals provide us at this time.
This time we will go for two days, which increases the chances of obtaining better photographs and seeing males fights.
The best males dispute the right to cover females to perpetuate their lineage. We will enjoy watching and photographing the courtship of males to females. Most of the days we will attend the show that involves the fight between two of the suitors and the sound that makes the clash of the horns until one of them is defeated.
With luck we can even photograph copulation

We will be on the mountain and at the end of November so we can find ourselves from cold and snow at relatively mild temperatures if the weather is good.
It is advisable to wear warm and waterproof clothing and hiking boots that withstand water or snow. It is possible that part of the route is done on snow.
Midium. Once we reach the Gredos parking we will have to look where the Ibex are and it is unknown beforehand if there will be a lot of climbing to locate them.
