YOUNG BULL IMPALAS TRYING HARD TO IMPRESS
End of April 2012 came with different, but amazing sightings. It’s the rutting season for impala with the bulls having a hard time as the strong “new” guys live a better life than the weak ones. Two of the weaker males were on each side of a small dead bush sharpening their horns for the next try. A beautiful lilac breasted roller was hovering over the same bush looking for insects that might be flushed out as the 2 bulls continued to sharpen their horns on the bush.
