Impala following the leader

Photographed in Hluhluwe/Imfolozi,  South Africa,  I watched these impala for about 15 minutes as they gathered and milled about nervously by this stream.   They were intent on climbing up the river bank to higher ground but in order to do so would have to make their way through long grass and brush before getting to higher ground.   The vegetation would make excellent cover for a predator lying in wait to ambush!
