Astonishing Encounter: Antelope Leaps to Elephant’s Height in Stunning Photo

A breathtaking wildlife photograph showcases an antelope, specifically an impala, leaping the same height as an elephant at the Mashatu Game Reserve in Botswana.

Wildlife photographer Janet Kleyn, 52, captured the impressive feat as the two animals unexpectedly met eye-to-eye in mid-air.

Impalas are known for their incredible leaping abilities, which they use for self-defense and amusement.

Kleyn, photographing the approaching elephant from an underground hide, recalled the surprise moment when the impala jumped into her viewfinder.

She explained that the impala likely hadn’t noticed the approaching elephant until the last moment as it drew closer to the water.
