Welcome Dave,

Though, I don't think you belong here - your pictures are rubbish  ;D




No, seriously, stunning shots - as Mick said, the Dik Dik is special.

Thanks very much Mick, thats a fully grown Dik Dik, they are the smallest breed of antelope, they stand just 15 inches tall, they mate for life, lovely big eyes. My wife (Julie)and myself fell in love with them, Julie wanted to bring one home with us LOL, one day we were sat under some bushes in a nature reserve in Bamburi Kenya, having a cig and getting out of the sun, and we saw one run past next thing another came sauntering on to a grassy patch we sat and watched for 15mins or so at times it was just feet from us, we didnt take any shots of it as we would rather just watch it going about its life, and didnt want to scare it off,
