"You don't bring a knife to a sword-fight"

That awkward moment when a Blue Wildesbeest playfully takes on a Gemsbok (Oryx) with its deadly rapier-shaped horns.

It was all over in a second or two, and I only got one frame sharp as I inadvertently stumbled upon this pre-dawn moment in the Kalahari desert, South Africa.
