16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Oryx at the sand dune

Just before taking this image I was taking some images from the dune from far away. While reviewing my photo I could see a white dot; the oryx. I immediately rushed over to see it up close because I knew it was a rare occasion.
