Bushbuck for Jan-Hendrik
He does not look fully mature, but he is getting there. The problem is that they just walk right back into the camp if they get removed, whether they are welcome or not, as I'm sure this one has. I think this guy might eventually be in trouble if he does not get the message. As far as I know the Parks Board do not like the rams in the camp, and I hope this guy got the message.
A nice post with a very good photo. Well done. Thanks for this great dedication Annick. I am touched.
You can also do some reading on the habits of the bushbuck here and here for more information.

Hi Annick. It looks to cute to be dangerous but you can never be sure. All the same you got a very good close up of the face with its horns , and big black eyes. Very natural colour and detail in the fur. well done TFS.

This has great focus on the animal. definitely a unique animal that's with out a doubt, I have never heard of this type before

Another beautiful portrait.The sharpness and details are awesome.
Lovely eye contact and detail like two finely polished ebony globes.
The catch light defines the eyes well.
There seems to be a bit of attitude in the expression of this fellow.
The colours are natural and well saturated.

Wonderful portrait shot of this cute bushbuck with an excellent frontal POV and composition.
Thanks for sharing this fine image my friend!
Have a nice Sunday with Dandelion:)
An animal that is not seen often and if seen they usually dissapear before a photo can be taken. This image is super sharp and detailed and he is probably just moving out of the penkop stage.

What a striking head-on shot of this Bushbuck, Annick.
The eye-contact is excellent.
Superb close-in crop.

Another impressive portrait from the master and this time a noble dedication to another great member here - Jan-Hendrik.
The full-frontal POV is remarkable and it brings with it a special feeling to the photo, thanks to the direct eye-contact.
The details and DOF are again "the Annick special" = superb and spot-on, while the exposure and colors are simply just as it should be.
BRAVO and TFS

This is very nice capture, sharp, details and with natura colours. I like eye-contact too. And as for me it is so cute that it can not be dangerous ;)

No, he's not a dangerous buck - he's a cute, sweet, young teenager...
But I will admit, that look he has in his left eye and the slight snare on his right lip and nose, do have a bit of a sly young fighter!!
Great shot Annick

You do these portrait shots so well. I love the curious glance and the bright eyes. Perfect DOF and wonderfully sharp. Great work
