A female and male Impala in their garden.

Captured during a rainy day; reflected through the colours.
The image is displaying a pair. It has to be said these animals are part of a group. They form herds, compared to for instance the less common Steenboks which are often found in pairs.

Thanks for looking.

Very good capture of those two Impalas in their natural habitat.

Hi Annick,
I like the scene you captured a lot. Very natural. Good exposure control and colors. TFS

Splendida cattura, meravigliosa composizione con la vegetazione che avvolge gli animali, anche la zona OOF in primo piano non disturba ma porta l'attenzione sui due animali che formano una bella prospettiva diagonale, ottima nitidezza, fantastici i colori. Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

Hello Annick,
Very nice shot and composition. TFS.
Best Regards

Very good photo once again, Annick!
I just love those big ears :-)
Excellent clarity, superb composition, perfect DOF and great light.

Well done,

Hi Annick,
a very pleasant, romantic capture of a couple of Impalas enjoying the pleasures of a rainy day bringing blissful humidity to their dry savannah habitat. I like the dim light and very subtle colours. Thank you!
With best regards,
