V1 is Mr Bushbuck
V2 is mrs Bushbuck
They are my son and my wife's favourite antelope - my wife loves the markings on their feet Smile I am unashamedly a KUDU man Smile
Thanx to all for your kind votes and comments on my 'soft' Zebra photos and especially to Willie and Jeff for their mods - it helped a lot Smile
A warm and strong berg wind started blowing here last night at 1 am and by 6 am the temperature is already 22 C - in mid winter !! It is always a prelude to a huge cold front Smile
