Hello Pierre,
This is a new antelope for me, and I must say a fine looking one at that. You seemed to have interrupted him during lunch, but he posed nicely for you anyways. Even though you only show it from it's shoulders forward it appears to be a good sized animal.
Captured in an interesting pose while displaying excellent detail and beautiful natural colors. From the looks of it's tattered right ear, I would imagine it can get pretty feisty with other members of it's species.
