Nyala in the Rain


Here in the Sabi Sand region of South Africa, the weather today is wet and miserable.

We headed out for a morning game drive despite the inclement conditions, and had a few sightings of various species of antelope.

When we saw a pair of nyala, I wanted to photograph them, set against the lush green foliage in the persistent rain.

In my opinion, African antelopes are under-rated, and are well worth photographing.
