"So wild, so free, yet so calm"


This photo was taken in the NamibRand Nature Reserve in Namibia, a gemsbok standing on a fairy circle.
- Fairy circles as explained in an older post, are some very enigmatic barren patches found in the grasslands, and not yet entirely explained by scientists. See also this article Enigma of Namibia's 'fairy circles' to know more...
- The gemsbok or gemsbuck (Oryx gazella) is a large African antelope, and also one of emblem of Namibia (on the coat of arms for example as you can see below)
