Gemsbok…

Well since Kgalagadi Transfrontier National Park used to be called Gemsbok National Park, I suppose seeing these shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise.

GemsbokI love the colouring, and those horns, which both males and females have! Apparently, Orynx horns were sold in Medieval Europe as unicorn horns! I’m not surprised, although I think they look better on the animals, than on display in a cabinet!

There is something about the symmetry of these animals that grabs me.

Above is an action shot I think came out quite well. All taken by my Daughter, Philipa when she visited Kgalagadi with my camera.

Yes, I didn’t see them. My daughter took them when she went to Kgalagadi – it was hot and dry she said, but it is at the end of the rainy season, so …I wonder what they look like at the end of winter? Mmmmm maybe I’ll have to check that out!
