|Eland - Please see the Large Version of that image.|
Common elands live on the open plains of southern Africa and along the foothills of the great southern African plateau. The species extends north into Ethiopia and most arid zones of Sudan, east into western Angola and Namibia, and south to South Africa. However, there is a low density of elands in Africa due to poaching and human settlement.
Elands prefer to live in semi-arid areas that contain many shrub-like bushes, and often inhabit grasslands, woodlands, sub-desert, bush, and mountaintops with altitudes of about (4600 m). Elands do, however, avoid forests, swamps and deserts.

Another impressive animal which we almost can see in real in your Large version!
Great, I have the feeling of being in the African Savanna..Love the tight framing and the decentred composition. An animal which we don't see so often here or in documentary films.
excellent composition. A lot of details. Amazing colours. Perfect depth of field.
Have a nice week,

same time it is giving an environmental photo
