That is a very impressive image, was it a dead specimen?

I believed it was dead, but working around her (it? he?) I somehow awoke her, but she barely moved her horn. Just enough that the picture done after this one were all blurred. She was caught by the repentine drop of temperature that day (from 20 degree in the morning to just 10, but very windy, at sunset). After the shooting I put it in the woodshed and next day it was gone...
