This is a nyala isn't it? The legs are different (not shown) than Matt's nyala.

The last one might be a kudu, PCNW.

PCNW, Your first image is of a nyala but the second is a kudu bull. Apart from the more pronounced corkscrew of the kudu horns, the face markings are different.

They do so look like compression stockings for varicose veins...

I love the tips of their horns too! I think these animals look particularly gorgeous in that diffused Mana light. All shiny and shaggy at the same time. Nice photos everyone.

An interesting side note on nyala...

 

Males and females of large antelope species are referred to as bulls and cows; and males and females of smaller antelope species are referred to as rams and ewes: oryx bull, eland cow, springbok ram, impala ewe, etc.

 

Nyala serves as the dividing line. Interestingly, male nyalas are called bulls, but the female nyalas are called ewes, not cows. Perhaps this is because there is so much sexual dimorphism in the species (males, among other things, much bigger than females).
