Last photo of my (@leonietravelling) trip to Slovenia! This was one of those moments I’ll never forget. I was taking photographs of the sunset when this Alpine Ibex ran in front of my lens. The Slovene legend tells the tale of a boy who tried to win the heart of a girl by giving her flowers, but she mocked him. Desperate, the boy hunted down an ibex for its horns. He managed to shoot it, but the dying animal ate the magic Triglav flowers and got better. The boy, who was blinded by the sight of the golden horns, lost his balance and fell from the mountain. The legend is now known throughout Slovenia as Zlatorog, which means Goldenhorn!
