Mooi foto van deze imposante beesten.
Ze komen mooi uit zo in hun natuurlijke omgeving.
En terecht opgedragen aan LOOT.

Peter, we are neighbours today and surprisingly, you too have dug a little deep in the past like me to show us this wonderful picture of Waterbucks from Kruger Park taken during your visit there in 2005.
The setting and colours are very natural here and the pose of the animals staring back at you has been well captured.
Loot, I'm sure, would be pleased at your dedication.

Yes, as Ram said, Loot would be very pleased with this dedication as soon as he sees it. He has gone to the movies with the children and how surprised he will be when he gets back and see this great image of the waterbuck couple dedicated to him. I like the way you captured this twosome with the female behind the male. It reminded me of the photos he took at a function last night, where he also captured the couples with the male in front in focus and the female behind him and a bit out of focus. The result was really great. Now to get back to the image, this is really a beautiful, typical Kruger scene and just as it should be without any make-believe. Although these buck are a bit away from you, the details are well seen to be appreciated to the fullest, and I especially want to mention things like the direct eye contact of both of the buck, the mud on the legs, the wetness of their snouts, the texture on the male's horns, the hair below the male's tummy and last but not least the most prominent feature of all the white ring on its backside. I really miss Kruger looking at this image. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hi Peter. I am very sure Loot will like this picture very much from Kruger Park wher many of his pictures come from. .A fine close up of the pair of Waterbuck. We have a fine view of the Male with its fine looking horns. All with natural looking colours and good detail in the fur. Well taken TFS.

You had the same good idea as Ram: you dived into your archives and found this superb present for our friend Loot. It's a picture that suits him and Anna very well. Your picture shows the characteristics of the Waterbuck very well and I particularly like the unity of the colour tones.

This Waterbuck couple, dedicated to me, tickles me pink with pleasure and excitement.
I am truly blessed with so many wonderful friends here on the site. Thanks for the kind
words MF and for this dedication to celebrate with me, my 4 years at TrekNature. After
all this time I really have one regret only and that is because of a dreadful shortcoming
of adequate time to be able to critique or contribute as much as I would like to. But, I
do realise that I am by far not the only member with this dilemma.
What I really like about this image:
- As you said, it comes from my most favourite destination i.e. the Kruger National Park.
- It displays 2 specimens; a male and a female animal.
- The way how the female stole a look from behind the male.
- The lovely composition showing these gracious animals in their natural environment.
Well done and TFS.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Wow!! Peter, what an impressive shot of this beautiful couple!!
Tac sharp detail, gorgeous natural colors and perfectly exposed combine for an outstanding photo!!
I would imagine he could do some serious damage with those long horns of his if he wanted to. They couldn't have posed any better for you, even if they tried! Great work!!

What a superb capture from your archives!
This pair of Waterbuck is taken in great lighting, fine sharpness and with a fine natural habitat as the BG and the composition just right.
You should have shown us this one before, but I'm glad you show it now and it is a fine tribute to Loot, whose contributions to this site are invaluable.
Thanks and have a good week,
