Alert & Ready

By Gezina  
Thank you so much for your kind support on the Marbled White Resting upload - very much appreciated.
I know there seem to be no rhyme nor reason to the uploads in my p/f at the moment but hey that is how it is, variety is the spice of life - right? I just browzed through my Safari shots and decided to share this one with you - Ina

This is a real beauty, Ina. Wonderful light and tones and great skin textures and eye contact. Superb natural habitat.

I quite agree - always a pleasure to look at wildlife pictures that capture the essence of where they are and this captures SA very well too

Hi Ina,what a magnificent pair, superbly captured gray.
I think these are most noble looking beasts. A superb well composed shot with great lighting. Are they called Gnu or Wildebeest in SA?

- Your OK Ronnie unless you're on foot and surprise one of these or threaten them they'r fairly harmless in fact even when they're praid upon they might just run off for a few yards and then graze on - buffalo however is another matter all together, they could be very unpredictable and seriously grumpy especially the lone bulls.

Thank you for your comment Steve these are Blue Wildebeest - you do get the black one as well but not in the Kruger - it is almost a more compact species but a white tail to it, I think I might have a photo of one but not as good as this one - they are much more skittish. Ina
