Common Impala - Fighting Rams A pair of Common Impala rams fight it out over territorial and dominance rights.  <br />

These rams did not even notice me ... their horns made a loud clap every time they collided.  Focused and determined, I managed to get closer and closer until I got this shot.  Again, the dust against a setting sun makes for a wonderful silhouette photograph.  As you can see, these guys put everything they have into the fight.
