You are showing a very fine portret of the animal. Image is sharp showing very good details. The structure of the horns can be observed in great details. You have made very good use of the existing light rendering fine and delicate colors.
Thank you for sharing,

This is one of the most beautiful antelopes I can think of, and your close approach just brings out so much of the lovely features I admire of this animal. The black and white markings in its face, displays so well on the screen and that set of horns surely deserves a medal or two. Just love the direct eye-contact, and the ears opened wide as if it is listening at something. Great photography.
Thanks for sharing.

Annick wow what a long horn. Lovely pose and good composition. ganesh
You have been rather quiet with new postings so I am just wondering why or when
will we see something new from you again. Btw, I have not yet written to you during
this new year so I just want to wish you and your loved ones a wonderful 2010. May
only the best light shine on your subjects this year MF.
This Gemsbok image is magnificent. As you probably know by now, I am very partial
to portraits as one tends to see so much more detail of the animal's facial areas. This
image does justice to the amazing and beautiful facial features of this bovid while it
also accentuate the length of those potentially deadly horns. These animals have the
ability to apply those horns with the same skill and agility that a master fencer might
do with his foil. Folklore, rumour or urban legend has it that you cannot throw a stone
at a Gemsbok and hit it. I have never tried to throw a stone at a gemsbok myself, but
according to the "story", it's sort of mission impossible to hit a gemsbok with a stone,
for apparently they hit it away with their horns. You be the judge (or jury) on that one
Well done and TFS.
