This is the most common antelope of the bushveld regions of South Africa. A very graceful, rufous-fawn antelope, with white underparts, measuring approximately 900mm at the shoulders. Rams weigh around 60 Kg and ewes 40 Kg. A black stripe extends from the top of the rump down the back of each thigh. The lower hind legs have glands beneath tufts of black hair. Only the rams have horns which are lyre-shaped, and reach a length of 700mm.

Hello George,
I see that I missed some beautiful shots..this one is a most intersting one, showing a whole group of elegant Impalas reflected on the water-surface. A difficult shot which you mastered so well. Very pleasant and original picture!
Kind regards

Great capture of those beautiful animals.Congratulations.
Best regards.

HI George,
this is really amazing photo. Great sharpness and composition. Beautiful animals and their reflections in water.
Have a nice evening,

George, beautiful shot of these Impalas. Almost looks like a painting. Have a great day, Bill

Hello George

Very Beautiful photo of these lovely Impalas,
fine POV, excelletn focus sharpness and details,
looking on them it is like if one Impalla
was the reproduction of the other !



A very pleasing image of the bushveld antelope. The effect is interesting as if they were toys, I'm not too sure if it is the angle plus the focal length of the lens that is doing it or possibly post production in an application whatever it is it has a nice appeal to it. Well taken George.
