Artist's Description

CAPTURED LOCATION: “THE KRUGER NATIONAL PARK”, South Africa.
Nikon D50
Lens: Sigma 70-300mm DG
1/1250 sec – F/4.5

Characteristics of the males are the beautiful, symmetrical spiral horns with a maximum length in access of 1.75 metres.

The horns have a well-developed ridge following the curvature of the spiral.

This graceful spiral has a disadvantage for the animal in certain circumstances and it is tragic to find two dead males inextricably caught together by interlocked horns after a battle.
