Toilet seat buck
Nice clear capture of this animal, but it does seem just a tad overexposed. He still is a beautiful animal and your focus is great on him, love the eye lashes, thank you for sharing it

This is a nice portrait of this animal that has a very strange nickname :) I like those details you caught, lightning, POV and composition. This blurred BG is very nice too and this is a great eye contact. Thanks,
PS, usefull notes:)

Very nice close-up of this beautiful animal. Great focus and very sharp details. Excellent POV and beautiful colours. Interesting fitting background too.

Willem, How much did you pay this guy to pose so wonderfully for you? I have seen lots of waterbucks but not one of them stood for me like this. Thanks for sharing and greetings to the RSA.
Willem, I am sure this Waterbok would take umbrage at its rump being compared to a toilet seat.
I thought the reference was to the horns! Their shape is in that perfect curvature! Mind you the tips would be to sharp for comfortable dangling of the legs... Certainly for a smaller person, not? So much for the "nick".
Photo itself is gorgeous, great sharpness and detail in the hairs, be it the fur or the eyelashes! Marvelous eyecontact and expression... Bravo. Off to the Horny bunch!
Congrats on passing the half-mille! ;j.

This amazing portrait is a pleasure for my eyes. You caught very well this magnificent animal !
The "+++" : subject, point of view, sharpness, DOF, blurred background, light in fur, complementary note...
The "-" : perhaps more space on the right...
Congratulations and thanks for sharing.
