[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a full frame capture of a female Steenbok or Raphicerus campestris.
Photographed in its Kruger wilderness habitat.

As you can see my girl posed very well. Hey, I chased away a predator with a big roar.
This is a
male Steenbok.

It is a solitary woodland browser, occasionally grazes. I sometimes spotted it in monogamous pairs.

Through open window car. No beanbag. IS on.

Hi Annick. Cute littke one this is . which you have captured with good detail and colour. Large ears for the size. a nice OV/DOF. well done TFS.

Hi Annick,

Very nice picture of this cute little thing. Very good pose and composition, nice BG and DOF, very sharp details and beautiful colours.



Hello Annick!
Yes, this is a species which was not known for me! And many thanks for showing it!
Really at first view I though that I see some of well known African species from this group, but soon later I discovered some details which clearly show that I was not right :)
Very good quality picture with great sharpness, colours and DOF.
All the best from Lodz!

Hello Annick

A very cute little deer.The focus is sharp with lovely detail.
The lighting and colours are excellent.
well composed in the natural setting.
Excellent POV and DOF.
Great job.


Hello Annick,
Good point of view for showing details in this lovely animal!
Fine details in the fur coat, and the DoF works well in isolating the subject...
The Steenbok is well framed and nicely presented!

Great capture of this Steenbok, Annick.
I just love the way the ears are facing in different directions :-)
Very, very sharp with impeccable clarity.
Lovely light and nice warm colours.
Brilliant composition.
Superb DOF.
Very well done!


Hola Annick, excelente definición y detalles, parece que no estaba en muy buenas condiciones el animal, se aprecian los huesos y moscas ó garrapatas?. Un saludo

Annick, Very lovely creature. It does indeed pose well.
