[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Ces impalas se déplacent dans les hautes herbes en état de vigilance maximum. Les lions peuvent en effet être tapis et surgir à chaque instant, bien cachés dans ces graminées dont la taille est pour eux un terrain de chasse idéal.

These impalas walk in the long grasses, all their senses at maximum alert. In fact, they are in great danger, because of lions liable to loom up anytime from this ideal hunting place

hello Patrick

The light has a good way of helping your shot to show the impalas here with its body color to stand out among the light yellowish tall grass. A nice pose of the pair with your 300mmFL capture. Apparently your focus and sharpness is good for this one.

tfs, bill

Hi Patrick,
I like your shot. Very clear and beautiful colour contrasts.

Bonjour Patrick !
Encore une image sublime, j'adore les couleurs tendres et pastels, tout comme j'adore les hautes herbes qui font de belles courbes, tout en douceur. La lumière qui tombe sur les impalas est très belle aussi, tout comme le POV, de l'arrière - c'est un peu inhabituel, mais assurément très joli. Félicitations !

  • Great

Hi Patrick. You have such warm colours in the close up picture of the Impalas. You have used the light so well. TFS.
Well done TFS.

The light is beautiful, the composition is okay, depth through shallow depth of field is nice and lastly the presentation is well done.
Nothing more, nothing less.
Well done, Patrick.

Ciao Patrick,
bellissimo momento di cattura di queste impala che timorose si muovono fra gli alti steli di erba, una spettacolare atmosfera creata dalla luce calda e dai colori delicati, molto bello anche il dinamismo della scena creato dalle diverse posture dei due animali.

Hi Patrick,
Excellent capture of these impalas, TFS
