Defassa Waterbuck (Kobus ellipsiprymnus defassa)  This hansome male waterbuck stood every morning in the marsh, in practically the same spot, and watched the sun rise. Conditions in a moment like this are difficult to work with. There is less light than seems. Easily one may disturb the animal with the wrong move or a sudden sound. This is why I had to use a long lens and a maximum aperture of 5.6, in order to get a shutter speed of at least 1/200 s at a sensitivity of ISO 450.
