For our recent Last Frame photo assignment, we asked photographers to submit their best funny, quirky or whimsical wildlife images for the chance to have it published in an upcoming issue. Congratulations to Gene Putney for winning the assignment with this photo of a mountain goat playing, taken at Mount Evans in Colorado.
“On a beautiful July day, it was close to sunset when a group of mountain goat kids got very active. They played for several minutes, rock hopping and jumping around on each other. This one was most active and separated from the others and put on its own little show.”
