Blue Wildebeest (Connochaetes taurinus)

And then, a few kilometers towards the Fisher's Pan, the big show began. I could not resist to stop again and again for photos. This, for example, is a Blue Wildebeest (aka the Brindled Gnu) standing quietly under a shady tree, seeking protection from the glaring sun. Blue Wildebeest are social creatures and typically live in groups of 20 to 40 animals, usually consisting of cows and calves, led by a bull.
