Brilliant shot Martin, really is. The B&W just does it.

We saw the Roan at that spot in October last year.

I have to say that I was lucky enough to see sable bulls in both Pamushana and even in Gonorezhou national Park. They're absolutely my favorite antelope,along with klipspringer.

If you want Sable Hari, Moremi & Chobe are two of the best areas, as you might know.;)

I head to Moremi in 3 weeks and look forward to photographing some nice herds.

Chers
