Hi Loot. What a unusual looking animal . As you say what great big eyes it has, with almost a sad look about his face. It also looks as if he has much to much skin . You have taken a fine close up so we can see all the detail with natural looking colours. with interesting notes. well done TFS.

Uitstekende foto van die dier met besondere detail op die gesig, ore, horings en veral die oog appels wat gewoonlik mooilik is om te sien. Die dier is ook maar redelik skaars veral om hom van so naby te sien. Gooie navorsing in die nota ook.

I'll drink to that toast to the Wolfman Loot! Sure thing...and you didn't waste time in finding one of your top drawer images for this dedication. That shows a good heart then eh? It truly shows your wonderful talents and tenacity! Very well done in both ways...

Goodness... what a sharp, close capture. I love the textures and details in the fur and horns. Color, sharpness, and off center placement all add to the effectiveness of the image.

He looks like he has all the worry on the world on his shoulders Loot.
What a cute character, and I especially like his red eye-lashes over his marble eyes!! And what a lot of wrinkles he has on his neck and shoulders too,

What a surprised look has this antelope in her eyes. Did you surprise her? A fine close up so you can see all the fine details. Natural looking colours. The ratios are as always good.
The notes are as usual interesting.
Well done, cheers and TFS BOB

great shot of this weird-looking Tsessebe.
The eye-contact is excellent.
The colours are slightly too cool (have a blueish tinge), maybe your monitor should have a bit more yellow in its colours.
Very sharp with excellent detail.
Well done Loot,

What a pity this pretty animal is not a female otherwise I would have loved to sing this song:
I feel pretty,
Oh, so pretty,
I feel pretty and witty and bright!
And I pity
Any girl who isn't me tonight.
I feel charming,
Oh, so charming
It's alarming how charming I feel!
And so pretty
That I hardly can believe I'm real.
I feel stunning
Feel like running and dancing for joy,
For I'm loved
By a pretty wonderful boy!
But although this is a male, I will seranade it with the words: "You're so pretty, oh so pretty, You're so charming, oh so charming".
This is such a pretty animal, that is actually hard to describe it's beauty. The perfectly shaped horns, the black patch on it's forehead and nose, the fine hairs in the ears and the most beautiful of all the Marble Eyes. I cannot find any fault. Perfection all the way. I am very glad you shared this one with us. A delightful image. Thanks for sharing.

'n Pragtige toewyding aan die Wolfman. Ek geniet jou titels wat jy uitdink vir meeste van jou fotos. Welgedaan. Natuurlik geniet ek die fotos nog meer en hierdie ou met sy albaster ogies is te oulik vir woorde. Dit is 'n besonderse skoot met die bok wat uitstekend uitstaan teenoor die beboste agtergrond. Dit word natuurlik aangehelp deur die kontrast tussen die Tssebe se kleur en die groen agtergrond. Mooi skerp fokus op die hele gesig en horings met daardie verspotte oortjies wat tog te snaaks vertoon. Ek het toe uiteindelik my eerste foto gelaai en ek moet vir jou dankie sê vir alles wat ek by jou kon leer die afgelope jaar of wat. Rehanna

What a stare!
He must have seen something rather puzzling? A Loot???
Hello, my friend. This is a very unusual antelope.
Beautiful warm colors on that coat.
The details are excellent throughout. I can even see the texture of the horns.
But the eyes definitely have it!!!
TFS. ; )

Beautiful well composed image of the Tsessebe with excellent sharpness & eye to eye contact. May I ask you for what reason you have kept it off centred (slightly towards left)?
Have a nice day: Subhash

I thought I left my critique at “ol” Marble Eyes but now see I did not. Sorry old chap. This face tells a thousand and one stories. The eyes follow you, no matter where yours go. The ears are perfectly shaped and lined. This looks like an old toppy just like me, because you can see the wear and tear on the skin and horns. Your title is perfect. Thanks for this great story. I am sorry I missed it the first time around. But is what happens if your time is no longer your own. But I am not complaining to much.

I am very pleased with your high estimation of my last picture. Thanks a lot for kindness and encouragement.
I cannot imagine how I could to pass this shot. Amazing portrait of this very cute animal. Details and sharpness of its image are exceptional and colour reproduction is also ultimate. I like wonderful and natural BG. Bravo. Once more masterpiece from you. TFS and all the best.
