[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Yesterday I made a mistake with the ID, but this is really an Impala.
I took this one in the neighbourhood of Shingwedzi camp on the H1-7 because al the other roads were closed of the heavy rainfall.

Thanks for looking

Hi Vivian,
nice closeup of this impala. nicely composed and fantastic detail. really nice lighting too although i think it's a pity about the strong shadow down it's face as it's a bit distracting. really nice otherwise! tfs

Hi Vivian

This is a superb close-up shot - the detail and colours are really good. Impala are always an animal I see a lot of, but take few shots of, but they are great subjects. (I once went to Kenya and came back WITHOUT a picture of a Thompson's gazelle)!


Hello Vivian,
Heb je veel regendagen gehad?
Vervelend met die gesloten wegen; was dit ook in het zuiden het geval...
Ik heb me zitten afvragen wat een aanblik het moet geven als die
riviertjes in de rivier(je weet wel wat ik bedoel) oftewel die immense kom opgevuld raakt met water. Was dit het geval bij de Shingwedzi, Olifants,...?
Mooie gastvrouw op je foto.
