[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Dorcas Gazelle ( Gazella dorcas) is one of the smallest living species of GazeLlla. In israel is one of 3 gazelle 1. Mountain Gazelle 2. Dorcas Gazelle 3. Gazelle acaciae (Gazella G ssp). The Dorcas Gazelle ranges in northern Africa to Egypt and Israel. The population were almost exterminated by the army and Bedouin, but subsequent effective protection from poaching increase the population to number of 2000 Gazelle. I took this photo at late noon time, 40c , you can see the heat waves all around.

Very nice shot of a very nice animal. Good picture. Well seen and good job.

I'm glad there's another idiot like me who chases things around in 40 degree heat!
The heat waves make an interseting shot, it really emphasises the environmental conditions these gazelle live in. I'm surprised you could get so much detail of the animals in such hot conditions. Nice composition and colour.

Superbe animals and a very interesting natural effect on the heat waves (here where I live I can relate, 125` Fahrenheit in summer and zero humidity but no such evident visual caloric ondulations). Also I have to admit I am pleasantly surprised as you decided to be more cooperative on the technical side. To share is to care !

At first I though... what happened to the BG. Then I read your note. Very interesting effect created by the heat waves. Well seen and taken.

Eyal, Great composition with harmonic colours of the animals and background. The shot seems a little tilted to me. Am I right?
Wonderful shot and composition.
Greetings, Jan

Very clear view of these delicate animals. The distrtion of the heat waves makes it very apparent how hot their deseert cliamte is.
