Interesting Moment you captured. Technically, not your best shot, but good effort. the crop is a bit too tight, leave some room on the top, don't crop to the ears. It difficult taking photo against the light. Try goind around and look for better location and light. I know sometime you can really help it in the wild. Big smile for the effort any

interesting moment captured
you cut the ears, and there is a white dull,
for this dull, some more contrast (a lot) and then less saturation, could improve the shot

Hello again Erwin, I like that moment too and the nice light shining on the impala. What an beautiful animal with those big ears and white hair here and there. The animal is so candid and seems so used to the presence of the expecker. Thank you!!!
