  1. Wow, this has to be one of the best antelope photos I've ever seen. A perfect showcase of their beauty, and their vulnerability. Well done! Posted 3 years ago
    1. Thank you very much Ferdy. I was sitting in a "blind", thus the black shade to the left of the photo ... only had a little crevice to look through (and take a photo). I agree, they are very vulnerable, and delicate and like everything else in nature, worth protecting. Posted 3 years ago
  2. I think the focus is spot on in this image. I must say, I'm rather jealous of all the exciting creatures you get to see in your country :-) Posted 3 years ago
    1. Thanks Stuart. Yes, I am very lucky in that regard. Nature Conservation is my life and my purpose and my being. And that is why a site like this is so great for me. It showcases moments at no other hidden values than for nature. Hope that makes sense ? Posted 3 years ago
  3. That is quite the hair-do! Posted 3 years ago

The common duiker, ''Sylvicapra grimmia'', also known as the grey or bush duiker, is a small antelope with small horns found in west, central, east, and southern Africa- essentially everywhere in Africa south of the Sahara, excluding the Horn of Africa and the rainforests of the central and western parts of the continent. Generally, they are found in habitats with sufficient vegetation cover to allow them to hide—savanna and hilly areas, including the fringes of human settlements.
