klipspringer1 I'd been watching a perched jackal buzzard, hoping it would fly in my direction. No such luck, but as I sat there this male klipspringer appeared on my left through a small hole in the bush and proceeded to scent mark his territory using the large pre-orbital glands. He then gave me nearly ten minutes of static optic display to guard his ground against rivals. Geotagged,Klipspringer,Oreotragus oreotragus,Spring,Swaziland Click/tap to enlarge Country intro
