Out of the Jurisdiction: Xigera Bush Camp

 Previous posts have shown you sunsets, elephants and lions, and makoro rides in Xigera Bush Camp.
Let's see some other mammals and a bird.


 This handsome bull kudu has fine horns.  Only male kudus have horns.


Female kudu.


Zebras


Lilac breasted roller.  When this beautiful bird flies away, it rolls and looks like a colorful fan.


Vervet monkey.

That is a very impressive set of animal shots. I love the horns on the Kudu.

Jack, these photos are stunning. You really have a good eye. I just love the ears on both of those kudus!

I expect that there is an elegant mathematical equation that describes the spiral of those horns.
