“Not now Henry, there are people watching!”

On my recent Port Elizabeth (work)visit I missed my flight and the next one was delayed by several hours, so I killed some time in the closest game reserve that I could find. This was taken in a small Game Park just outside Port Elizabeth, named Kragga Kamma.

I have posted a shot of a waterbuck before and here is the link for more info regarding this great antelope.

The male looked like he was very much in love and enjoyed this female's company. I have never seen them do this so I decided to post this. The shot does not have good eye contact, but they only had eyes for each other and were oblivious to my presence.

Oh very nice of you Japie good bit of habit captured here thank you for sharing

Hi Japie

I like the title. Good shot of these two. Is there anymore white on them or just the stripe around the bum? TFS

The focus is a bit soft, but you caught well the action.
Nice color balance.

The animals are in superb condition. Obviously very happy. The shot is unique, moments that very few even think of. We are priveledged to see such good shots here on TN.'
Very good job Japie

Very good Japie.
I like this one.
You catch nice moment, good composition and colours.
Good title.
Great job.

Japie, Boy what an *#! kisser!! ;-) This "cheek to cheek" romance is familar! I like this one very much for its interest! Thanx! Mr. Cheek ;-))

Very funny! And an excellent example of why, even on a business trip, its a good idea to have your (photographic) equipment with you. Maybe you were lucky the male wasn't interested in you ....
