[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This Damara Dik-Dik ewe (Madoqua Kirkii) is having lunch between the thorns on this bush. These animals are endemic to the North-west of Namibia and very rare. She stands about 35cm tall even though she is fully grown.

She does, however, possess all the lovelinesses any woman would be envious of. Big shiny eyes, thin and well formed ankles and auburn hair. Isn't she a beauty?

Very nice catch - wow - have never seen such an upclose natural shot. These antelope are so quaint and delicate looking.
Well composed and exposed shot - tfs!
