This is a fantastic capture Annick with superb eye contact! Tones of colors are beautiful in a good composition and perfect exposure. This is a great animal that you photographed at 23°27'S (Tropic of Capricorn) more or less :) :) :) I like this colorful blurred background too. Thanks!

It's so good the definition and colour saturation of the nyala.
Details on its fur are amazing, the white stripes on the body and the head makes of this animal a true beauty.
I like very much this composition and the blurred background.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Well, let's hear it for image stabilization! The sharpness is great. ... as are the colors and that gorgeous background. It is a very strong photo with perfect white balance and range of values. Ahhhh.... you "raise the bar" for all of us.

Bij dit soort foto's bekruipt me een enorm gevoel van heimwee naar het Krugerpark. Ik fotografeerde toen nog niet digitaal. En als ik deze foto zie heb ik daar ontzettend spijt van. Wat een kanjer! Deze nadert de algehele perfectie!

Another outstanding portrait you present us here!
This is indeed a splendid animal - similar to the kudu, but i would say this one is more beautiful, or at least more photogenic with all that natural contrast given by the stripes on its body.
The pose you managed to get here is impeccable, with it facing right to you! Due to that, you also have a sort of symertic here - on the face of the nyala. It even has a funny white mustach and another white line between the eyes :))
The patterns on its body and the colors that they have really make this a very beautiful animal.
You capture is simply flawless! Impeccable sharpness, perfect POV and a terrific DOF, all completed by excceptional exposure values.
BRAVO and TFS

So, you obtained a beautiful portrait!

Gorgeous capture, Annick. There is another contender for similarity - one that I just saw a few hours ago in the wild - the american white tail deer. Not in color and markings - but in shape - same long ears and neck, same huge eyes. Though you did much better than I did in capturing it with all the detail you managed to show us in a perfect light and perfectly balanced exposure. Bravo! Cheers, Klaus
