So for the first time on my recent trip I managed to capture some shots of springbok pronking:

I though this could be a fun topic to see springboks in action :D

Useless information: The "pronk" smells like honey.......

Now are going to want to know how I know that....... well that is not so long a story...... one of my aunts had a tame springbuck and he loved getting his back scratched hence you will be close enough to smell the pronk aka the white hair folded in on the lower back.
I live in my own little world. But it's okay they know me here.
