Waterbuck - Looking the other way A pair of Waterbuck bulls are about to engage into a territorial and dominance fight, while Giraffes look on (and into the other direction).  <br />

Animal antics are gorgeously innocent.  Instead of observing a hormonal display of power, the Giraffes are rather looking for the more dangerous threats, of lesser disturbance and or violence.  It is the quiet, silent one that will kill in the wilds.

    1. Thanks Ferdy. When the bulls go into this type of behavior, they care about nothing else ... just the rut. Posted 6 years ago
