PCNW,  Your first image is of a nyala but the second is a kudu bull. Apart from the more pronounced corkscrew of the kudu horns, the face markings are different.

I love the tips of their horns too! I think these animals look particularly gorgeous in that diffused Mana light. All shiny and shaggy at the same time. Nice photos everyone.

Safaris and Ketchup are similar, sometimes you shake the bottle of Ketchup and nothing comes out, you shake and shake and shake and all of a sudden everything pops out.
So donīt stop shaking the bottle, thereīs a lot inside.
