On one of my last days in Kenya with spectacularly flat overcast light, I wasn't going to be put off. I was pleased just to get one or two shots where the animals weren't turning their backs and/ or moving further away (you know who you are, zebras), or gawping at me (giraffes).

Can any experts out there can shed a bit of light about the different markings of the middle one? Maybe just that that's the female and they have different markings? I doubt it as I can only recall seeing one like this, which in the meantime I have christened 'albino'.

I should have asked the guide but as usual I was bringing up the rear having stopped to take loads of photos.

In the background on the left is the country club itself, a very nice place to relax and have a meal or just a drink and outside there are all manner of bush pigs, giraffes, zebra, and birds meandering around doing their thing grazing, the young ones playing, including a peacock strutting around.

BTW I don't know if anyone uses the Geotagging feature; my figures are only approximate for any photos taken in Kenya. But they're in the right neck of the woods. My connection's so slow, I'm not going through the pain of doing them all precisely so if anyone is curious about locations, just ask.
