effectively an animal portrait and,  as is the case with a human portrait,  “the eyes have it”.

Dik dik antelope, Tarangire National Park.

The Dik dik is the smallest of the antelope species being only slightly larger than a domestic cat and tends to shelter in scrub and tall grass.

Widely distributed throughout sub-Saharan Africa and sometimes seen on the Arabian Peninsula as well, the lilac-breasted roller is a fairly common but beautiful species.
