[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Greater Kudu (baby) is very easy to observe in the southern NP of Tanzania, but I did not see a single one in the northern NP (Serengeti, Maniara, Ngorongoro and Tarangire.
In the original picture the animal was in the left part of the frame, so I made the decision to cut away the rigt part.

Hi Tom, exceletn shot with good POV and nice cleare motive. Maybee too much blure around.

Very impressive capture of Kudu galloping across the plain, Tom. The single frozen moment with its fore feet in the air is well recorded at 1/1200.
This is a very graceful and beautiful animal.
TFS and regards.

Great action shot. I like how you have shown the detail of the muscles in the Kudu's body.

great capture, it looks so thin, TFS Ori

Tremendous, tremendous photo! One of the best here in a website full of wonderful shots! You've captured this little baby kudu in perhaps one of the best poses possible...just prancing and being alive! It's also special, because you don't often see a little kudu, because the focus is more often on the spectacular males. Just amazing!
