A WILDEBEEST IN THE WILD:-Needless to say,I had captured this picture in Kruger National Park.I saw this lone Wildebeest after the Sunset at Crocodile Bridge.

The Wildebeest,also called the Gnu is an antelop in the genus Connochaetes.Wildebeest were first discovered about 1700 by Dutch settlers on their way to the interior of South Africa.

SCIENTIFIC CLASSIFICATION:
Kingdom:Animalia
Phylum:Chordata
Subphylum:Vertebrata
Class:Mammalia
Order:Artiodactyla
Family:Bovidae
Subfamily:Alcelaphinae
Genus:Connochaetes(Lichtenstein 1812)

Wildebeest inhabit the plains and open woodlands of parts of Africa south of the Sahara.

Not all wildebeest are migratory.Black wildebeest are often herds nomadic or many have regular home range of 1Km.

Over the years the South African authorities have issued several stamps displaying the animal and the South Africa Mint has struck a two cent piece with a prancing black wildebeest.

Hello Srikumar

The scenery of this African wild animal in its habitat, the foreground light
and specially background's sky's light and color tones, all are giving an
atmosphere effect to the photo, TFS

Hello Sri,
A Wildbeest in front of a pink sky, very special:-), Another lovely shot from Kruger.
Thanks!

Hello Srikumar,

You're capturing well this nature scene by a good composition and very excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see Kruger National Park which is surrounded by the bush and some kind of plant, and lonely wildebeest wandering the ground of park. It's the beautiful and lovely animal with the stripe line to body and seems to lookfor the food. And, the surrrounding atmosphere after the sunset draws out a tasteful impact in the whole.

Kind regards,
mikio
