[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Klipspringer (Afrikaans for "rock jumper") is a small antelope found in N. Nigeria, E. Central African Republic, NE & SE Sudan, Ethiopia, Angola, S. Africa.
The coat has a yellowish olive gloss, speckled with yellow and brown or orange, shading to white below. The coat harmonizes with the background of rocks. The texture of the coat has been variously described as mosslike and grasslike. The thick, pithy hair lies like a mat on the body to cushion the animal against bumps and bruises in its rocky environment.

Hello Kris,
An unusual looking deer, caught in a nice relaxed pose. A very sharp image with good natural looking colors.
Many prefer an image that isn't centered, but to me it's a choice of each individual to make. I think this one looks just fine. Very informative notes!
Ron
