This large antelope (weighs up to 240 kg) is found in grassland near woodland and water where it eats grass. Despite its name, waterbuck does not spend much time in the water, but will take refuge there to escape predators. Females gather in herds of up to 70 individuals.

    Never seen one lying down, wonderful capture Kon, blends so well into it’s surroundings.

  • Thanks a lot Macky, I guess he was feeling safe enough to lay down.
