Ciao Mr. Benari,
Wonderful capture so well composed of such a rare event. Well done!
Sheep need to eat even in Morocco. I would have loved to have been there.

Fun view of a big tree growing goats!
I didn't know they are so agile, that they can climb trees in search for fruits.

first i read it "aragorn" tree, and thought "what might this tree of goats have to do with lord of the rings?"
even though goats are good climbers, i would not also guess them walking on thin branches high up in a tree. i am certain that i haven't seen such an original subject for ages on TE.

Kia ora Gilad,
You are right it does look surreal. Great capture of an unusual event. Cheers, Neil

Interesting shot you're sharing with us. The moment is quite decisive indeed. Great POV with a very balanced outcome (framing and color tones).
This said, and having lived in Marrakech for many years, I guess the shot was made rather close to the city of Essaouira rather than the red city (Marrakech).
In addition, the tree you're presenting is called the "ARGAN" and not "ARAGON" tree.

I'll bet you're glad you had a camera with you when you came across this! It's a great grab shot, that is very funny, although if you're a goat, it probably seems quite normal behaviour. It's made my day!
