Hi Erwin

A cool capture of this young "penkop" impala ram. Those little horns have just started to develop and another year or so then this guy will be in his prime.

A lovely composition for this portrait. Nice sharp details and natural colours.

Well done and TFS.

Hi Erwin,
Good light and DOF. Beautiful young male.
