Greater Kudu (Tragelaphus strepsiceros)

I have captured this picture of Greater Kudu at Sunset Dam (Lower Sabie) in Kruger National Park. This picture was taken just after the rain so you could see the blue sky reflection on the bubbles of water.
Kudu is a woodland antelope found in Ethiopia πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡Ή, Tanzania πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡Ώ, Kenya πŸ‡°πŸ‡ͺ, Zambia πŸ‡ΏπŸ‡², Angola πŸ‡¦πŸ‡΄, Namibia πŸ‡³πŸ‡¦, Botswana πŸ‡§πŸ‡Ό, Zimbabwe πŸ‡ΏπŸ‡Ό, Mozambique πŸ‡²πŸ‡Ώ, Swaziland πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡Ώ, Somalia πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡΄, Chad πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡©, Malawi πŸ‡²πŸ‡Ό etc.
They have also been introduced in New Mexico but were never released in the wild.

Hello Srikumar,
Very beautiful photo in splendid warm light and good sharpness. Great choice of composition.

Light on Greater Kudu is spectacular.

Hi Srikumar,

The animal is well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing the details of the Greater Kudu. The light is giving good rendering of the colors. Have a nice day.


Hi Srikumar,
You managed to use the few lights the best way - a very clear capture with perfect sharpness on the kudu. Composition's very strong, too - although just a little more of the water surface might take it even more effective, I think. But a fantastic piece of art this way, too. Congratulations!
Kind regards, LΓ‘szlΓ³
