[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was taken at Atlanta Holiday resort (more camping). The place is about 60Km outside of Brits.

The buck is a Kudu and we caught them eating when someone startled them, so I had the oppurtunity to get some nice action shots.

Basically they eat grass and leaves and live in the bushveld. They stand from 1 metre to 1,5 metres at the shoulder and weight between 120 to 300 Kg.

More information on the Kudu can be found at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greater_Kudu

This is amazing, what a super shot!
The only problem is obvious, the background should be more natural. Oh well.
Thanks for sharing!

Soos ek jou vertel het, die regte plek op die regte tyd.

Great action shot!! Very good compo, with good detail keeping in mind that this is an action shot. It may be a bit bright, but that is your choice. Still a good shot.

Thanks for the post.
