[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This old bull (Oryx Gazella) is standing lonely. On his coat one can see that life has left it's marks. It shows his stature and experience, but also that he is not part of the hustle and bustle of the social scene any more. His reign overthrown.

Hello Dirk,
I like the special approach of this photo with the oryx on one side and the panoramic.
and also the choice of the black and white to show the lonely feeling.
Well done and TFS
