B&W gives a real power to this shot and a sense of "drama"
Well done Jan

I thought this guy was interesting.

Have seen plenty of one-horned/curly-horned/splay-horned gemsbok in the park - but never a no-horned one.

I thought he looked like a lady who had over-plucked her eyebrows :)

Shame jenand! I wonder if he never had horns, or whether they broke off during a fight! :(
