@@Tom Kellie,really like#45, Nyala portrait, such pretty creatures. I also appreciate you going to the effort to show you camera settings, really useful for those of us that are on the "starting blocks" with photography.

After reading your most recent trip report and enjoying the photography therein, it's an honor to receive such a generous comment from you.

When I joined Safaritalk, I noticed that @@Game Warden requested camera settings for posted images.

With time and practice, that became my approach of choice.

You and I feel likewise — nyala are indeed lovely animals. They're one of the top reasons for visiting South Africa, aside from doing bird photography with my talented friend, @@Peter Connan.

Thank you so much!

Tom K.

Male Nyala with Flies

Photographed on 5 October, 2015 at 7:27 am in Leopard Hills Private Game Reserve, Sabi Sands, South Africa with an EOS 1D X camera and an EF 400mm f/5.6L super-telephoto lens.

ISO 800, 1/2500 sec., f/5.6, 400mm focal length, handheld Manual exposure.

****************************************************************************************************

~ Pity this poor ole feller, flies clustered by his eyes, no ready appendage to shoo them away. Perhaps business as usual in the daily routine of a Sabi Sands male nyala, yet nonetheless annoying.

He was a member of a bachelor herd in shadow beside the track. We were heading out to a possible resting leopard sighting, but paused to admire the striking form of the nyala, a Sabi Sands favorite.

 

There are some nice shots there @@Tom Kellie thanks for sharing.
