Have you voted for Caption This #4 yet? If not please go here. It’s easy, and fun – and FREE!
The setting: Close to a waterhole in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. In a previous post I featured a little movie which showed Blue Wildebeest coming to a waterhole to drink. In it you can see how they approach in single file, and then fan out as they get close to the waterhole. This is standard for Blue Wildebeest when travelling between two points – they like to move in single file (I’ll discuss that further in a future post). What happened here is that one Wildebeest was determined to continue “walking the line” and when he came across another Wildebeest standing across the “path” he started to ram it out of the way. Instead of doing something logical – like stepping around it.
When you spend time watching animals and birds in the bush, you often see them in amusing situations or poses. It always makes me wonder what they’re thinking. It’s so easy to ascribe human emotions to them. So I thought I’d give you all a chance to think up captions for some of the funnier photographs we have taken. The winner (picked by the readers) will unfortunately will not be getting a big prize, just have the honour of being named the winner! If you can think of a good one, please leave a comment.
