A kudu bull stands tall atop a termite mound. Even though we view these beautiful animals fairly often, I have always struggled to get decent photos of them due to their rather shy nature.

The Greater Kudu (Tragelaphus strepsiceros) is a woodland antelope found throughout eastern and southern Africa, and is one of the largest species of antelope. Males weigh 420–600 lb, with a max of 690 lb, and stand up to 63 in tall at the shoulder. The ears of the greater kudu are large and round. Females weigh 260–460 lb and stand as little as 39 in tall at the shoulder; they are hornless, without a beard or nose markings.

Normally the Kudu is a very shy species – it was lovely to see this majestic bull staring at us quite happily from the roadside.
