Processed this image today.   An oldie.  Apologies... Suffering from heat haze with the Nikon 500 Af-S on this day... Found a way to get round it although the sensor ability then, can't give what we see now.  

Either way, great to see this young Eland Bull.  Large view sort of helps see this perhaps as it should be shown. 

D300 1/800 at F5.6 ISO 250...  

Thanks for looking.  Hoping all safe and a very good "Thanksgiving" to all.

I love the way they make the most of any patch of shade they can in the heat of the day, as you have captured so well here, Dave.  You've got some hidden gems coming out of your archives.   :)

Nice play of light and shadow on this fellow-I wonder how hot it was there. I like seeing the whole environment.
