Photographer's Note

I think these are trace of hares :

Traces the most common and many are left by the hare (Lepus timidus) and brown hare (Lepus europaeus). These animals move by leaps, up to 5 meters if they descend a slope.

Their fingerprints are like a "Y", hind legs forming the front of the footprint. In fact, during breaks, the front legs are folded under the chest and touch the snow last.

Is it the traces of the Golden Eagles?

Those days an eagle circling above the peak of Puy Saint Vincent.

Every 5 years since 1978, the guards Ecrins organize the counting of the Hautes-Alpes phoenix to know how is the valuable species protected. In 2005, 123 birds were sailing through the clouds crowned the Park, 54 people more than in 1985. A rising tide that will stabilize. In this figure, it takes 45 pairs, each divided in their home range, ie an area of about 70km and thirty juvenile or adult prey without assigned territory. A good sign of vitality.
