Impala (Aepyceros melampus) lambs learn at a very early age they’re on everyone’s menu! Constantly on the alert, they put their speed and agility to good use if faced with possible danger.

Although Canadian by birth, I grew up in Africa and from an early age travel became a regular part of my life. As a result I developed an early passion for my two great loves, Africa and aviation. Being fortunate to return to Africa every year with our own safari company “Explorations Africa”, all of my photos of wildlife are taken in their natural and unstaged settings.

    what an absolutely corker picture dan!!!!!

  • Thanks very much Carol! I was particularly pleased with this one as the Canon 100-400L is NOT good at focusing on moving targets quickly. Great lense otherwise, but have tried for this kind of shot soooooooooooooooooo many times without succes.
