Wildebeest Sunset

An oldie, this one, but one still worthy of a dusting off.

This wildebeest (Connochaetes gnou), or Godfrey the Gnu as we named him, was more interested in keeping an eye on us than watching the magnificent sunset going on behind him. He might also, of course, have been keeping a wary eye on a couple of lions that were lazing in the evening sun not far from us.
However, he was an obliging fellow: he stood still as the sun went down behind him and it wasn’t until the sun disappeared from our view that he seemed to shrug and wander off along the ridge.
Taken twelve  years ago in the Masai Mara, Kenya in my pre-digital days.
