These teeny guys are so cool. I’m surprised he stands above the grass. Their nose is unique and the huge eyes are fascinating..

Such beautiful little creatures that mate for life, usually where there's one, their mate is close by. Lovely image!

Nice job capturing him in the clear; you put the time in you get the results! What a cute and somewhat magical little creature.

The contrast of the bright green grass and the delicate little creature make this a sweet image

It's been hard for me to get a Dik-dik photo out in the open all these years :). Love the lush greens around the cute creature.
