This week's photohunt theme is fast. This was really hard for me because I take most of my photos when I have slowed down. A couple of ideas crossed my mind - a fast moving stream, women rollerskaters (did that already), surf on Oahu. But these did not feel right.
So I decided to go with pictures of some of the fastest animals on earth. First up - Thomson's Gazelle. These sleek animals can run up to 50mph. Although slower than their predators such as a cheetah, they can often out last their predators. You'll find them in large herds across the grasslands of Africa. We saw them in Etosha in Northern Namibia.
Wildebeest or Gnu
Next up is the Wildebeest. When you see these animals sauntering across the horizon or clumsily getting up from the field, you wonder how they survive. But they are also one of the faster animals clocking to speeds up to 50mph.
Black Faced Impala
Last is the Black Faced Impala. These antelope are also fast runners at 45mph. These are so beautiful. I love the sleek color and beautiful horns. All these animals survival depend upon speed.
Have a great weekend.
