Male Black Buck Antelope by Ginny York

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…


I took this shot at the Virginia Safari Park in Natural Bridge, Virginia, USA. They have a 180 acre area where you can drive through, with all sorts of animals that roam around free. The Black Buck Antelope is naturally found in the semi desert plains and the open forests throughout India. Males stand about 32 inches at the shoulder and weight about 90 pounds, and can reach speeds of about 45 mph. This guy just wanted a nice rest. LOL

    Nice tight framing here which really emphasises those fabulous horns. Good clarity and composition. This works particularly well as a framed print!

  • Thanks so much Rosanne! Glad you like the crop. I love those horns! Thanks for adding this to your favorites!
