Who has more Impala shots to upload? Is it a species you photograph often?

I try... But for some reason it's not a species that I have been able to photograph well... I find them particularly difficult models to work with!

I agree! In Zambia, the Puku would pose - looking at the camera. The impala were mch more likely to run away!

Great idea for a thread, even though I've been on only one safari I did feel a bit sorry for the impala's just dismissed due to the their massive numbers. Not in the same league as others here but these were my best images:

Hi @@sanjay, it was a dramatic scene as a hippo appeared and started chasing the impala out of the water. The dogs had given up and continued hunting elsewhere so the impala made it

Never Tiresome



Photographed at 7:19 am on 22 January, 2013 in Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya, using an EOS 1D X camera and an EF 200mm f/2.8L IS telephoto lens + EF 2x extender.



ISO 100, 1/125 sec., f/5.6, 400mm focal length, handheld Manual Exposure.



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



During the May, 2015 safari in Masai Mara I was asked by a fellow lodge guest if I was ever tired of seeing or photographing impala.



The question took me aback, as impala are a safari highlight, no matter how seemingly ubiquitous they may seem.



I'll start tiring of impala when lilies lose their lustre in my eyes, when sunsets fail to turn my head and when butterflies seem like no more than bee-eater fodder.
