[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The blesbok or blesbuck (Damaliscus pygargus phillipsi) is an antelope endemic to South Africa. It has a distinctive white face and forehead which inspired the name, because bles is the Afrikaans word for a blaze such as one might see on the forehead of a horse.

Hello George,
A beautiful antelope indeed, but do you know what captured my attention right off the bat..it was the unique lighting you seem to have there in Africa. I have notice in many of your past shots that during sunrise or sunsets you grasses seem to almost be on fire with brilliant shades of orangish red colors.
Back to your subject....it is an awesome looking beast with it's rich chocolate coat and spiralling horns. Captured in fine detail with almost a 3D look to it.
Well done!!

Hi George,
Nice guy, great compo and POV.
Great colors and management of the light. Well done, congratulation. This is a nice view of this blesbok, different from the usual.
