[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Correct me if I'm wrong, please; I suspect this one to be a male Bushbuck. A Bushbuck is one of Kruger's antelopes.
You can find other KNP antelope species in my Kruger National Park travelogue.

From wikipedia the free encyclopedia
The Bushbuck (Tragelaphus scriptus) is an antelope that is found in forest and woodland throughout Sub-Saharan Africa. Also called "bush antelope", this is used occasionally for any relativers with which it shares its habitat.

ISO 800,
PP in Lightroom and CS3.

Thanks for looking...

Hi Annick,

What a superb close up portrait shot, excellent POV and I like the pose with the slightly open mouth, lovely detail in the fur, with lovely natural colours and nice light reflecting on the nose, eyes and horns.
