[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Impala [Aepyceros malampus]
The graceful impala is a slender, medium-sized antelope so adaptable that it is found from southern Africa to the northern limits of East Africa. The body is reddish-brown with white hair inside the ears, over each eye and on the chin, upper throat, underparts and buttocks.
A narrow black line runs along the middle of the lower back to the long tail, and a vertical black stripe appears on the back of each thigh.
Unlike other antelopes, impalas have large, brushlike tufts of long, coarse black hair that cover a scent gland located just above the heel on each hind leg.

Sawasdee ka Bunyapon,
excellent view of this elegant impala. You have captured at its best pose, glance and eye contact.
The depth is really powerful in framing the animal into an attractive view.
Very nicely presented with lovely composition.

Hi Bunyapon,

The point of view is showing the details and colors of the Impala which seem to be on alert. The suject is well placed in the frame. The afternoon light is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.
