Taking a Sip

An impala gets a drink of a water near Francistown, Botswana, creating a wonderfully geometric scene. "The symmetry in this frame is spot on with the impala in the center but then paired with random sets of legs in the background. The light falling on its horns and hide highlight the different textures of the animal," remarked Your Shot photo editor Kristen McNicholas. "Nicely done!"
