The Pasterze, the longest glacier in Austria, lies within the Hohe Tauern mountain range in Carinthia. The summit on the left side of the image is the Grossglockner, Austria's highest mountain (3,798 m = 12,461 ft). Due to global warming, the Pasterze, once a proud glacier filling the valley, is rapidly fading away. Actually, the Pasterze is the fastest-dying Glacier in the Alps. In 2013 it lost about 100 meters of its length, by Bernd Thaller
The Alpine ibex (Capra ibex), or Steinbock, is a species of wild goat that lives in the Alps. The males carry large, curved horns. This Steinbock lives next to the Pasterze glacier in the Austrian National Park "Hohe Tauern" in Carinthia (the ice field of the glacier constitutes the background of the image). In the evening, when the tourists leave the region, the shy animals are sometimes seen closer to the hiking trails than usual, by Bernd Thaller
