Lesser known safari creatures 3
The Grant's Gazelle is less known than the omnipresent Impalas and Thomson's Gazelles in Eastern Africa.
It's larger than the smallish Tommies reaching almost the size of the Impala and often occurs with Tommies although it can live without drinking for a long period and has therefore a larger range to the North into the semi-desertic regions of Northern Kenya and Sudan.
The picture shows an adult male

Hello Tom,
Beautiful light and details in this amazing leaping gazelle. Love the sharpness and the natural tone in the frame.

Hello Tom,
A great stop action shot of this stunning Grant's Gazelle. Love it's beautiful coat and unique markings. The long spiralling horns are a real eye catcher. Wonderful detail and attractively composed. I see you even managed to capture a little catchlight in it's eye. Super job!!
Hope you don't mind, but I just had to try a WS.

Hello Tom
Impressive action photo with perfect timing, excellent composition and great sharpness!

Hi Tom.
I admire your timing. Great sharpness and beautiful light. I don't know how may take a dynamic photo more different than this. Just beautiful. Very well done. Bravo and TFS.

Hello Tom,
nicely captured at the best moment. Leaping is its special ability and you showed it very well.
Excellent composition of lighting, and the blurry green background definitely render a special view.
