[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here another posting of the most seeing animals of the Krugerpark.
But they are so gracious to see and everyday when I saw the Impala´s I wished them a nice day.
With the Impala on the right you just can see the eyelashes that I noticed later on of course, not when I took the shot.

Thanks for looking

Ha Vivian,

Leuk intiem plaatje van twee impala's. Schitterende kleuren en een rustige achtergrond.


This is a lovable shot, Vivian.
A very touching moment of affection between these two impalas.
The picture is very sharp and beautiful.

Hi Vivian,
Prchtig, heel mooi scherp en zeer gedetaileerd. Je ziet niet alleen de wimpers bij de impala aan de rechterkant maar ook de wimpers en kinharen van die aan de linkerkant.
Mooi zonlicht en prachtige kleuren.

Hello Vivian,
What a lovely photo :) I believe that showing this picture would be a great idea for 14th February :>
Anyway, nice details and DOF, good timing and POV, colours well saturated - these characters are the best in my opinion :)
Best greetings,

This is lovely Vivian. i do like those eyelashes. All the tan tones are so nice. I love the shapes of the horns. The action adds so much to the image. It is technically very well done.

Evelynn : )
