Two young impalas, one female and one male behind, are hiding inside the thick bushes of Lake Manyara National Park.
Lake Manyara is a shallow lake. Said by Ernest Hemingway to be the loveliest lake in Africa, it is also the home of a diverse set of landscapes and wildlife.
Of the 127 square miles (329 km2) of Lake Manyara National Park, the lake's alkaline waters cover approximately 89 square miles (231 km2).
While most known for baboons, the lake and its environs is also home to herbivores such as hippos, impalas, elephants, wildebeests, buffalo, warthogs and giraffes. (source: Wiki)

So this is where Bambi retired to! Another beautiful natural scene, the animals do look like they are whispering to each other. The nice dark shadows show their shyness in coming too close, but in saying that, the face in light looks very proud. Beautiful to catch the male and female together like this too, the difference in the horns is pronounced.
All the best

Nice impression of the two impalas against the patch of strong BG. Interesting is the natural framing with the branches of the bushes...well done

The light management is perfect in this picture, with the silhouettes of the impalas trying to hide from their predators! Excellent colors and sharpness! Wonderful composition! Well done!

This is a very difficult shot with this light, but you did well. I like the dark almost silhouette of the impalas. The light and brown vegetation suggest the heat must be really high. the animals must be hiding in the shade to stay cool.
