Oryxes on a walk
The Gemsbok or oryx, Oryx Gazella, is an iconic symbol of Namibia, appearing on the country's coat of arms and is the national animal of Namibia. A typical desert-adapted animal, the gemsbok is extremely tolerant of Namibia's arid conditions and is found all over the countryside, including the Namib Desert. It was my dream to capture the Oryx on this endorheic salt pan because now I have both unique things of Namibia in one frame.

Since last few years nature photography is a major part of my life and I am loving it but let me make it clear that this is my love not my profession. The Big Cats are my favorites, especially the largest in cats The Tiger, my all time sweetheart. Their elegance, the way they play in water, the way they roar, their proud walk.. every thing make me their die hard fan. We all can learn a lot when we spend time in nature and see the life circle of any tangible living thing in this beautiful world. I am sure this will help anyone to become a better person who understands the necessity of respecting nature and maintaining the stability of our eco system.
