Bounding Steenbok, 7 February 2021. Copyright 2021 Forgotten Fields. All rights reserved.

A sharp-eyed Steppe Buzzard (Buteo buteo) on a post and a bounding Steenbok (Raphicerus campestris) in the stubble. The nearby Steenbok Mountain (not in the photograph) is named after the latter, but only in recent times have I seen the species in the wild. Such sights are the source of my love for this region—and the stuff of my poetry.
