Lord of all he surveys

On a trip to Eravikulam National Park near Munnar in Kerala, I came across this Nilgiri Tahr. The tahr is one of the most endangered animals in India. Their population had gone down to just 100 at the beginning of the 20th century. However, now they are 2000 strong and roam all over the Nilgiri hills. This particular one though - looked like the lord of all that he surveyed.
