Blue Wildebeest .. and their young ..

Months ago I posted on the Blue Wildebeest and shared my photos taken in the Kruger National Park… these are from the Kalahari Gemsbok Park…

The early morning shots have such a wonderful colour in the Kalahari..

To see all the young was a privilege.. obviously they are doing well in the desert…

    • I knew someone was going to ask that.. and my standard answer would have been because they aren’t red… but it’s derived from a conspicuous silvery-blue sheen, that is not always easily seen… they tend to look more of a brown in the morning light to almost a grey at midday.. but that seems difficult to capture on camera… when in big herds you see the blue far easier, take a photo… and they look grey… but they do look blue to the naked eye..

    • They are on the thin side.. but when you see these guys run.. those legs have a lot of power in them… great runners and most of the time for nothing else but fun…

    • Now you are delving into my mind set… so many times I will watch animals and birds and wonder what is going on in their heads… these look like they are wondering what to watch on TV tonight…
