Oryx beisa



Photographed at 5:14 pm on 1 October, 2014 in Samburu National Reserve, Kenya, using an EOS 1D X camera and an EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II super-telephoto lens.



ISO 160, 1/2000 sec., f/3.2, 400mm focal length, handheld Manual exposure.



****************************************************************************************************



Upon entering Samburu National Reserve in the early evening, we observed a considerable number of Oryx beisa grazing together.



More surprising were the Grevy's Zebra intermixed with them. They appeared to be famished, eating with singular intensity despite our presence.

My Name is Beisa. Beisa Oryx...



Photographed at 3:20 pm on 28 April, 2014 in Samburu National Reserve, Kenya, using an EOS 1D X camera and an EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II super-telephoto lens.


ISO 800, 1/5000 sec., f/2.8, 400mm focal length, handheld Manual exposure.


*****************************************************************************************************


Never having seen oryx before, the first encounter was breathtaking. That such striking animals existed at all was a marvel. Seeing them firsthand was a blessing.


This oryx was among the first group I saw. Such an unmistakable form. A wee touch of Hugh Lofting's Pushmi-Pullyu about it. I've liked seeing oryx ever since.

To Infinity

 

Photographed at 5:15 pm on 1 October, 2014 in Samburu National Reserve, Kenya, using an EOS 1D X camera and an EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II super-telephoto lens.

 

ISO 250, 1/2000 sec., f/2.8, 400mm focal length, handheld Shutter Priority exposure.

 

****************************************************************************************************

 

With oryx the visuals outweigh any behavior, in nearly every instance. Which isn't to say that they're dull to observe, but rather acknowledges their extraordinary appearance.

 

With distinctive markings on their legs and face, they're a memorable species. Yet the gaze returns again and again to the horns tapering away towards infinity.
