[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

Did you know that most young impala are born around mid-day as this is the safest time to give birth since most of their enemies are resting. Half of newborn are killed by predators within the first few weeks of life.
The impala is one of the most common and most graceful of all Africa’s antelopes. A slender, agile creature, it can clear formidable obstacles and run at speeds faster than 60km/h. They are fleet runners who can leap up to 10m in length and 3m in height. They use their tremendous speed and agility to avoid predation, and seemingly for pure enjoyment.

George, ¿Qué puede uno decir ante tanta belleza?
Un trabajo de exposición simplemente maravilloso.
Gran detalle en el impala, bellísimo entorno de pastizales, delicada luz naranja delineando el lomo del antíolope, los pastos dorados por el sol... Hermosa obra.
