The story behind the image

Two springbok (Antidorcas marsupialis) sit in the grass and watch the tourists passing by. It had rained the days before our arrival, so the grass was really green, giving the whole Etosha Park a somewhat surreal appearance. We were told that during other times of the year, especially during dry season, there is not a single green blade of grass to be seen. Apparently, the springbok like the fresh grass as well.
