Crazy Kids

"A rambunctious group of American mountain goat kids practice leaping from one rock prominence to another atop the jagged stone of a 14,000-foot tall mountain," explains Your Shot photographer Tony Oswald of this scene in Freeland, Colorado. "Testing their maneuvering skills through such play will help them live and thrive at this altitude as they become adults." This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
