[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Springbok inhabit the dry inland areas of south and southwestern Africa. Their range extends from the northwestern part of South Africa through the Kalahari desert into Namibia and Botswana. Springboks can be found in numbers of up to 250,000 in South Africa. They used to be very common, forming some of the largest herds of mammals ever documented, but their numbers have diminished significantly since the 19th century due to hunting and fences from farms blocking their migratory routes.

In South Africa springbok inhabit the vast grasslands of the Free State and the open shrublands of the greater and smaller Karoo. In Namibia they live in the grasslands of the south, the Kalahari desert to the east and the dry riverbeds of the northern bushveld of the Windhoek region. In Botswana they mostly live in the Kalahari Desert in the southwestern and central parts of the country.

SA must be a wonderful place for nature lover like you friend Bungbing. This is a fine catch capturing the springbok gazing unaware to your presence. Love the tone and details and nice one for TN.

Hola Bungbing,

Que suerte disponer de tan rica fauna y flora que da tantas oportunidades al fotografo de naturaleza,
Magnifica imagen con gran riqueza de detalles.
Buen fin de semana.

Hello Bunyapon,
good capture of this fine grazing Springbok. love the shallow depth of field and the fine moderated detail on the animal coat! The colors ...specially the greens are looking a bit too bright and they are even glowing. The blue cast around the white highlights suggest that your white balance has been incorrectly set. This minor notes however can be easily adjusted in post processing, my friend! How pity that your workshop has been locked!
Have a nice weekend Bunyapon !
