Nilgai Bull

Nilgai Bull
Went looking for birds to photograph, but ran into this young Nilgai bull instead. He was resting in the middle of a field, but my approach made him nervous.

Василий Касимовский, blokkadeleider, Bjarne Stokke have particularly liked this photo

That's a good one, Rajan. He looks very impressive. Are they aggressive at all? I know I wouldn't venture into a field with a bull here. They would come charging!

This is a very common breed of antelope in the rural areas of Southern Gujarat, where I live. They are not aggressive at all. On the contrary they are quite shy and wary. There was a larger herd also close by, but they were very skittish and would not let me approach.

You definitely have a lot of interesting wildlife in your part of the world. Beautiful photo.

Yes indeed M@rtin. I live in a fairly remote part of the state of Gujarat. Though that throws up certain challenges, it also has it's rewards in terms of the flora and fauna all around us. Most of these photos were taken within a 5 km radius of my house.

And this is the amazing thing...
- Green field.
- Something that resembles a dike in the distance and an electricity mast.

It could be here in the Netherlands.

Except for the Nilgai bull of course. Beautiful animal.

Yup! I might very easily have photoshopped an Indian antelope into a Dutch landscape. :-)
Thanks very much for your visit and comments.
