[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Two waterbuck were looking at us very nervously from behind some bushes as we came nearer. Suddenly they jumped across the road right in front of our vehicle. I was able to grab my camera and take two shots of them in full flight. Although I'm not completely happy with the sharpness and the contrast, I still would like to share it with you. The shot was taken in Thornybush game reserve in fading light.

I will give you a point for great timing! Capturing a moving animal isn't easy and you managed to get a great "pose". True it isn't the sharpest and it is a little dark, but shooting action in fading light is difficult!

I agree with Laurita - great capture on the buck. I wish it were more focused and lighter but you had no forewarning!

Thanks for sharing,
