I believe this is a Günther’s Dik-dik (Madoqua guentheri.) Seen outside my tent in the Maasai Mara, Kenya, September 2011.

    Yes, it’s a Günther’s Dik Dik. They are very shy, so congrats to this capture!

  • Many thanks for the confirmation Henry. We were lucky enough to have one that slept next to our tent!

    Arent they amazing? The smallest deer in the wold! I saw one only once in Kenya in 1988… this is a much better photo than I got then!!

  • Many thanks Heather. I love their eyes, they are so big and expressive!
