Average mass for a male impala is 40 to 75 kg (88 to 170 lb), while females weigh about 30 to 50 kg (66 to 110 lb). The coat is short and glossy, normally reddish-brown in colour (hence the Afrikaans name rooibok, not to be confused with rhebok. They have lighter flanks and white underbellies with a characteristic "M" marking on the rear.

Very good picture. Good POV. The BG is blurred just enough to make the Impala the star of the show. Your timing was excelent.
