Sharing moments in time…

Africa – take 2, the Kudu


Thanks to those that wished me well on my cataract surgery yesterday – It was an EXTREMELY interesting process and so far it seems to have worked very well – if anyone wants to know more about the experience, I’d be glad to share.

In any case – back to Africa!  My model of choice today is the incredibly attractive Kudu – a large member of the antelope family.  This is one of the best looking animals on earth – large and regal with amazing spiral antlers.  Add to that the fact that they are incredibly agile and graceful jumpers and you have one impressive beast.  They are plentiful in Kruger and if you’re lucky you can see them jump over obstacles as high as 10 feet!  This particular male was posing for us on our first game drive – hope that you are as impressed by the Kudu as we were!!  As always, please click (or double click) on the image to enjoy the close up of this magnificent animal!

Beauty in the Beast!

  1. I just read of your cataract surgery yesterday…I hope yours is as successful as mine.
    What a blessing that the surgeons have the gift of giving us sight…a second chance to see.

    • Hi Siggi – It went great – I already have no pain at all and the Dr measured me at 20/20 already and said it would only get better. I had a new procedure and an adaptive lens put in that should make be glasses free for the first time in decades! It truly is a gift – I’m glad you have gotten the same results.

    • Fergie,
      They are incredible and its amazing how they move through the brush without getting “snagged”.
