Greater Kudu

A greater kudu (Tragelaphus strepsiceros) stands majestic, as if on parade, staring at the photographer. While the kudu’s ears are large, thus providing excellent hearing capacity, they also serve to cool its body in its generally intensely hot environment, through a capillaries which give the ears their pinkish colour. No fireworks photography here, this is very much a record shot.
