Just thought I'd post this pic of Red Hartebeest as they don't get much exposure. I like it because they seem to look down their long noses at you.

Really great photos Jan! Thank you for posting.

I think this may be the same 'white' sprinbok that lion queen saw during December. This photo was taken in early January 2013.
