Charles, a wonderfully timed shot. I tried to capture something similar this in Mountain Zebra National Park, South Africa, without success. As you say it is not easily accomplished. Well done!

One of the most fantastic pictures I've ever seen. Full of messages, almost a fantasy, but I know this is real. Congrats!

On a recent visit to Etosha I tried and tried to get a Springbok plonking with no success. So congratulations to you.

Pronking Springbok

On a recent trip to the Karoo, I had one goal, photographically - to capture a pronking (a feature unique to this antelope where it performs multiple leaps in the air) springbok. This proved to be harder than I thought (hard to tell which member of a herd is about to pronk + they are really quick + they don't do this often) but I was lucky and after some perseverance I managed to bag this shot. It's amazing to watch this behaviour happen right in front of you and I am happy with this image as I feel it gives the viewer an idea of what the real-life action was like.
