Dikdik having a sparse meal

The dikdik is one of African's smallest antelope. They are extremely shy animals, normally hiding in low shrubs and bushes. When I took this shot, it was extremely dry in the Etosha Park and this one gave a good display trying to find new leaves on the harsh, dusty thorn bushes.
