You may be a little green on posting photos, but you did a great job of capturing the images in the first place.  The last time I saw one of these handsome guys was in Tarangire. Funny, I was just thinking about Tsavo East today.  May have to start thinking about it some more!

@lilhomer

Welcome to ST!

You have posted a nice picture of a Greater Kudu, whilst this thread is devoted to Lesser Kudu..... (Lesser Kudu do not occur in S.A., but only in certain parts of East Africa - Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Ethiopia and South Sudan)

Thank you.  There are actually four (one is sort of hidden).  An amorous male and three females.

Fail and frustration !!!

 

This Lesser Kudu flew in front of our vehicle. I tried  panning  with her and unfortunately the  kudu went perfectly focused. I say unfortunately  because I cut  the antelope´s nose   and know i feel frustrated every time i see it !!!

Paco, what a stunning photo, shame about the nose but super feeling of motion and atmosphere.

If I ever get time I'll post some. :)
