Very nice photo! works great. It makes me wanna take the decision for the antelope or to look through its eyes to what exists on the other side.

Very sneaky creeping up behind this guy, they are usually very skittish and not so out inopen terrain. Gr8 composition.

Note how he stands on the tips of his hoofs. The two digits of the hooves are tightly connected so that they do not splay, allowing for great agility on rocky terrain. Directly translated the Afrikaans word klipspringer means rock jumper.

Bahamut, once again, the "getting close to the subject" is a lot easier with the 420mm lense on my panasonic FZ10, so even a skittish chaplike this Klippy can be caught what appears to be close, he really was a fair distance away.
