A Walk in the Park…?
Of course, a walk in Kruger National Park isn’t quite like any other walk in a park.



An Impala is a potential target; Leopards, cheetah, Nile crocodiles, lions, spotted hyenas and wild dogs prey on impala.
However this male apparently can’t keep a low profile and impress females at the same time. Well?

Hi Annick,

Great capture of an Impala on move in its natural habitat. Excellent composition and very sharp details, nice BG and warm natural colours.

TFS

Best wishes

Pekka

A lovely composition, Annick.The stance you've captured is very majestic and becoming of this deer.
Cheers!
Goldy

An elegant impala portrait from a nice lateral viewpoint Annick, good illumination, and in spite of a complex habitat almost no clutter in the BG. The greenery in the left compliments this fine composition, TFS and cheers,

Hi Annick,
I like the pose caught mid stride, it's well composed with just the right amount of space as this graceful beauty moves through the frame..Technical excellence,
You da man :)
