I saw this wildebeest in Daan Viljoen Game Reserve, a short drive from Namibia's capital city, Windhoek. I have seen scores of brindled gnus, but I always found them to be surprisingly difficult to photograph well - in my opinion, their coloring and lack of spectacular horns, etc., makes it difficult to take an interesting photograph. This one was on a hilltop above me, so I was able to take a picture of it set against the sky, rather than shrub. The result was that I finally took a picture of a brindled gnu that I liked.
The blue wildebeest is a large antelope and one of the two species of wildebeest. It is placed in the genus "Connochaetes" and family Bovidae and has a close taxonomic relationship with the black wildebeest. The blue wildebeest is known to have five subspecies. This broad-shouldered antelope has a muscular, front-heavy appearance, with a distinctive robust muzzle.
