The Kob (Kobus kob) is an African antelope occurring in a belt from Senegal to Uganda and western Ethiopia. It is mid-sized and while appearing similar to the South and East African Impala it is more robust and instead related to the Waterbuck and Lechwe. The Kob is a grazer living in small groups of a few dozen individuals. Only in the eastern part of its range, herds of several thousand antelopes form and migrate over large distances. The animals are dependent on water and therefore do not stray into arid regions.
I have photographed these graceful antelopes in the Pendjari National Park, northern Benin, in February 2012. The short film has been taken with the Canon EOS 60D and a Sigma 120-400 mm lens. It has been edited with Adobe After Effects as well as Premiere Pro and fitted to a width of 640 pixels. As I am new to video editing, please give me advice, if you can – the resolution is just so much better on my PC…
