Picture of the Day: Lee Bothma’s Antelopes in a Misty Sunset

Copyright Lee Bothma

Wildlife photographer and explorer Lee Bothma, roams some of South Africa’s most untouched places in search of the perfect photo. In this magnificent snap, Bothma captured a group of Springboks antelopes in a misty sunset scene in Kgalagada Transfrontier Park, South Africa.

The springbok (Antidorcas marsupialis) is a medium-sized brown and white antelope-gazelle of southwestern Africa. It is extremely fast and can reach speeds of 100 km/h (62 mph) and can leap 4 m (13 feet) through the air.

The photo is been up on 500px.com for 2 months and since then has gotten a viral wave of praise online. Head over to Bothma’s profile for more of his amazing work.
