Hi Annick. Good to see you again . This is an unusual looking animal with the brown body and white stripes , But a grey neck.with the large ears. You have taken it with good detail and natural colours. Well done TFS.
Ha die Annick,
Goed je weer eens met een foto te zien. Erg goede foto trouwens, met prachtig natuurlijke kleuren en uitstekende scherpte in een mooie compositie. Ben benieuwd hoe er gereageerd wordt op je recept...Ik vind het een geweldig grappige vondst. Het ontbreekt hier nog wel eens aan humor.
Hopelijk binnenkort de volgende foto.

Nice framing of the charming animal. I like composition a lot as well as impressive cold a bit colour palette. Combination of sharpness of the main subject and blurriness of the nice BG is great as always. Funny link especially from nature lover. My best wishes and thanks.
I REALLY like your Kudu Lady - especially the natural Colours!!
I found many photographs on TrekNature in the short time I have been a member, where the after treatment was overdone, i.e. the animal did not look at all - like we find it in nature - but rather like the horrible paintings in cheap Nature-Books!
The focus is just perfect, one can even see the insects/parasites on her face. You caught a very typical pose - Kudus appear always proudly to hold up their neck.
The little bit of green in the right bottom corner balances the layout of your photo.
I see you were in Etoscha in December, you must have been boiling in the heat! In previus years - I talk now about the late seventies (we had just arrived in South Africa)- Etoscha was open to tourists only in winter...
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday,

Another Kudu...who knew? :)
The OOF veggies seem to frame it well.
And as I said, who knew?
It's not a bird, it's not a plane..
It's another "skulking" Kudu ;-}}
Merry Christmas friend!
