[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Arabian Orynx was brought to the Hai-Bar Wildlife from U.S.A Preserve from the Saudi-Arebia. From cave drawings found in the Sinai and Eilat areas, it is clear that the Orynx was once very common to the Israli landscape, until to Roman period, when he was exterminated from the wild. In Israel, about 80 Arabian oryxes had been reintroduced in the Negev and the Arava deserts

Wow, Eyal. Impressive horns on this oryx.
The details are incredibly sharp, and the exposure on the white body is very well handled. I really like its pose with the head turned back, and the composition is excellent. TFS. : )

shalom eyal,
great capture!beautiful subject having nice colours and sharp details.i also liked the blurred BG.
thank you for sharing.
P.S. i've run out of my smileys so i can't give you one now but i won't forget to smiley this great picture tomorrow.

You have really mastered the use of the magnificent lens my friend. The more I look at your work, the more I want one. [Just hope I can take such good pics if I get it!]

BG is superbly blurred to add the the image of the animal, eye is brought in straight away and your composition and placement is well thought out. Brilliant as always.
