Hi

I took this picture on Thursday 2010/09/16 north of Satara. There were two ewes under a small tree a few meters away. It was very hot and they all were under trees or any kind of shade.

RP, lovely bent-back action shot. :clap: :clap: Caught in the act, so to speak. Perhaps they were chasing each other so that you could get the pic? :hmz:

Leeukos, super buck! :clap: :clap: Nicely posed there. I wonder if that is the same one that hangs around the Satara area, about 10km north on the tar road?

Pumbaa the best area I think to spot reedbucks are around letaba. To be specific go on the tropic of Capricorn loop.

On our last trip we saw 8 Reedbucks: a couple near Phabeni gate, a couple at the S11, 2 females around 10km north of Satara and then 4 (3 males, 1 female) 5 minutes later :D
Here are more pics of the 4, one of the adult males looked much healthier than the other one!

I always thought that the Capricorn Loop was near Mopani :hmz:

Was lucky with Reedbuck last trip, seen them close to Satara (near main road to Olifants), along the H10 halfway between Lower Sabie and Tshokwane, along S41 and S90 , close to Bangu waterhole.
I am sure they will appear in one of the stories in my TR :) :)
