So, it's good to know that @Game Warden, amidst all the madness, still has his wits about him.  He tees up this new topic and emails me the link.  How could I refuse?

 

This below is my avatar photo enlarged.  A sable antelope bull in the Vumbura (or Quedi) Concession in the Okavango Delta, Botswana in Aug 2008.

Just this past September, a somewhat magical thing happened.  The photo below is of a totally different bull in a totally different country 10 years after the above photo was taken.  Busanga Plains, Kafue National Park, Zambia - Sep 2018.

I wish I had a sable to contribute.... beautiful @Safaridude 

 

Not being as much of an antelope fancier, I have to look for the dramatic. Topis apparently defying gravity to avoid the crocs in the Mara River.

Splendid idea to restart this!

 

A magical encounter in the Kafue last October. Seeing Roan had been a priority on this trip, and fortunately we struck gold with a lovely early morning sighting on the Busanga Plains. We stepped out of the car and used a small ditch to approach them on foot - or rather on bellly.

I have yet to take my favorite antelope shot, but in the mean time this will have to do:

Peacefully feeding wildebeests comfort me. Going about the business of living, not trying to be anything more than they are.
