This is a female waterbuck. Not a particularly interesting looking animal but this was an impromtu shot with back-lighting that worked quite well.

Hello Chris - This is an elegant portrait of the waterbuck. The backlight is quite beautiful and your chosen DOF has separated the buck from the background very well. I like this a lot.

This Is a lovely animal portrait.
You have got the focus exactly right.
The features are sharp and nicely textured with the b/g oof and the backlight highlighting the hairs.
You couldn't have asked the animal to pose better than this!!
Have a great day,

A splendid back light picture with a good neutral BG for this razor sharp portrait
Definitely one that I'd like to have in my own gallery
Bravo, best regards

Hello Chris - you certainly took good advantage of this opportunity - the waterbuck is in perfect position and the light through its hair is lovely. Thanks.

Amazing portrait! I love his fully stretched ears. Backlighting brings out furry outline and creates pleasant bokeh in the background.
