[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a young Waterbuck male. It's photographed in Kruger National Park, South Africa.
More info about this antelope can be found in the free encyclopedia wikipedia.
Other Waterbuck images and in depth data can be found in my Kruger National Park travelogue. For instance this female portrait here.
photo is taken at the same spot and time. Guess it could be its mom.
Furthermore you can visit my website here

Photographing conditions: same as described in yesterday's post. ISO 250.

Post processing workflow is also more or less the same as in my previous upload which you can find here

Thank you very much for your critiques and comments.
Have a sunny day:-)
