Blurred panic

Gemsbok and Springbok blur

Gemsbok and Springbok blur

This photograph was taken at Okakuejo waterhole at midday. The light was very bright so I had set my aperture to f16 and my ISO to 100. I didn't expect the animals to run but something scared them and they took off.

Luckily mt camera settings were already set to a slow ISO and a small aperture and I panned with the gemsbok and springbok's motion resulting in this blur.
