Springbok seen from the shop

Earlier this week a small group of Spingbok walked up along the fence of the sports resort across the road from the shopping center. What a privilege to view wildlife from the comfort of my workplace. 

 I loved this shot where two deer meet up and touch noses

 The springbok is a medium-sized antelope found mainly in southern and southwestern Africa. The sole member of the genus Antidorcas, this bovid was first described by the German zoologist Eberhard August Wilhelm von Zimmermann in 1780. 

I'm linking to Saturday Critters with Eileen here 

Here's wishing you a happy Saturday! 


  1. What a treat to capture the Springbok near to your work place. They are absolutely graceful and beautiful. xx

  2. they are amazing, and if i worked with them outside my window i would not get much done. i love the long wavy horns.. they are on the list of animals i have never seen, not even in a zoo. and for that i am thankful they are not in a zoo.

  3. That is wonderful to be able to see these beautiful creatures so clos to your shop.

  4. Nice to see wildlife nearby.

  5. Hello Jo, they are beautiful critters. I think I have seen similar antelope in our zoo. But, it is much nicer to see them in the wild. Wonderful photos. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend.
