Nice pics Leeukos. :clap: :clap:
There`s nothing like a big old bull turning blue around the neck, staring down at you!
And then the cows with those big radar dish ears. Absolutely stunning antelope!
Thanks Leeukos!

I saw this beautiful bull near Lower Sabie in April and thought he definitely deserved to be included in this thread.

Kudus are definitely my favorite antelope. There is no way one could look into those eyes and not fall in love. :)
