Some Kudu images today.
V1 - a magnificent bull relaxing in the grass
V2 - young bull grooming his leg
V3 - a cute young cow
Had an amazing sighting of a huge Rhine grazing right next to the road yesterday - but its head was in the long grass all the time. Hope for a better one today or tomorrow.
Thanx for all the votes and comments on my leopard upload and especially to Dave [ ugly], Christine [ ChristineD], Kathryn [ kathrynlouise] and Ju [JuBarney] for gracing the images with their precious UA's - much appreciated !!

Three splendid shots Herman! I love V1, though, it is a magnificent creature. Lovely light in all of them. It reminded me of some pics I took when I lived in Montana, I will be posting those when I ran out of current pictures. Hugs from Caracas.

3 great captures Herman, glad to hear you are having a great time. Just something neither of us have mentioned,...each curl/twist of their horns means another year older, so he is 2 years old....have a great day
