Artist's Description

The baby Nyala turned 3 days old yesterday. He stood about 15 feet away from me. The mother left and hid behind the bushes, but he stayed and looked at me. I went down on my knees, so as not to frighten him. As I started to take a photo of him, he turned and started running towards me and that just finished me. I was absolutely stunned. I dropped the camera into my lap and reached out my hand towards him. It was so awesome to have this beautiful little creature sniffing my hand, before going to look for his mom. After he had walked away from me, he still kept looking at me.
Next to the birth of my daughter, this was an experience I had wished for all my life.
How trusting, innocent and beautiful. It is the way it should be between man and animals.
