A teenager Kudu bull feeding. V2 - a small group of Kudu teenagers. The Kudu Bulls and cows separate before the cows calve and stay apart until the calves are grown and then come together to mate again - so mom raise the kids alone.
Thank you for all who voted and commented on my African daffodil - much appreciated - and thanx to Jukka for his mod Smile
Have a great day !

Good morning Herman,

One of the things I love about this site is the education received and you are definitely an educator. These images, as per usual are of a great standard. I love V1, V2 is really characterful; if you keep educating me at this rate Herman I will have a PhD in African studies before long.
