Flying Impala

Black-faced Impala - Goas waterhole

We drove to Goas waterhole near Halali in Etosha and were watching a group of black-faced impala.

Everything was calm when suddenly something spooked them and they started running in all directions. This one ran in front of us and jumped into the air - I had time to take just one photograph. No time to focus or even think what to do - this is the result.

Hey Anne - very nice photograph, especially for one taken by instinct with no time to think!

Most of my pronking impala have been blurred or I've ended up with half the body chopped off.
