Dankie Amanda! Ek sien min het verander na 4 jaar awesegheid met punte toeken en onderwerpe wat goed doen (hier) en onderwerpe wat die mederheid (behalwe Art en Roz hulle) nie eintlik verstaan soos ons nie...

Worth a 9 from me, Harvey. Fantastic capture. It may have done better if the impala had hummingbird wings though.


Thanks Art! Really kind of you for the 9. Yes how silly of me not to arrange an impala / hummingbird moonlight meeting 9 months ago :) ...

Hi Aunty Roz! Thank you so much. They seldom jump and I'm quite happy to have been able to witness and capture it in the wild.

Very nice mid-action image. Great focus that reveals so much about this animal.
