Bushbuck, Nyika Plateau, Malawi

Bushbuck (Tragelaphus scriptus) were common around Chelinda Camp. At dawn they grazed near my tent and seemed relatively accepting of my quiet movements. This one, however, I photographed from the open window of the ute.

Beautiful. Also, that jacked up rear end for quick take-offs and turns of speed.
