Artist's Description

Like the sky opens after a rainy day we must open to ourselves…. Learn to love yourself for who you are and open so the world can see you shine. ~James Poland

PHOTOGRAPHY: Wildlife in Africa
The graceful impala is a slender, medium-sized antelope so adaptable that it is found from southern Africa to the northern limits of East Africa. The body is reddish-brown with white hair inside the ears, over each eye and on the chin, upper throat, underparts and buttocks.
A narrow black line runs along the middle of the lower back to the long tail, and a vertical black stripe appears on the back of each thigh.
Unlike other antelopes, impalas have large, brushlike tufts of long, coarse black hair that cover a scent gland located just above the heel on each hind leg.
Family: Antelope
Size: 28 to 36 inches tall; weight: 100 to 135 pounds
Diet: Grazers and browsers, Impalas eat tender young grass shoots in the wet season and herbs and shrubs at other times. During the dry season they drink daily.
Habitat: Savanna and light woodland. Impalas are found at grassland and woodland edges, usually very close by water.
Reproduction: Between 6 and 7 months, a single fawn is born.
Life span: 12 years.
