Game photos.

My brother in law, Wim, and I took a late afternoon drive to look for game.


Click to enlarge.




Gnu, or Wildebeest, lying in the sun chewing cud. 




The rest of the heard.




Young Kudu bull.




Ground hornbil. 




Old Kudu bull with magnificent horns. This old bull was just skin and bones, obviously on his last legs. 




Bless buck ram standing proud.




Impala ram.




Black backed jackal slinking through the undergrowth. Jackals are natures true survivors in spite of centuries of persecution  by man the still survive and thrive in Africa. 


Went for an early morning (sunrise) walk this morning and managed to take photos of Zebra, an Nyala bull and a Warthog.

Oh YAY! I get to view SA game through your lens. Thanks. Beautiful photos of the buck. Are there no predators (large cats, I mean) As you said you went for an early morning walk? Love and blessings. Jo

Jackels are a necessary part of nature. Someone has to clean up when the old Kudu Bull kicks the bucket.
