Impala, Chobe, Botswana
James Pham spotted this beautiful impala while on a safari in Botswana's Chobe National Park.
Pham told TODAY.com that he took the picture at 6 a.m. on an early-morning game drive. "It was the birthing time of year, so tons of impala and springbok babies were around, testing out their spindly new legs, bounding and leaping," he said.
Still, it wasn't easy to capture them on camera. "Taking photos of animals is frustratingly challenging because they never seem to do what you want or expect them to do," he said. "This shot turned out perfect because the impala looked at me dead on."
Pham writes about his travels and posts photos on his website fly, Icarus, fly.
