A mixture of mammals

Three new mammals have been added to the gallery today. I spotted the Lion lying under a small tree with a carcass and waited until it had finished eating. Even at this relatively close range the heat haze presented a problem in photographing the cat as it left the remnants of its kill for the scavengers to clear up. The Wood Mouse was photographed during a small mammal survey, posing really nicely before making its way to cover. The Steenbok is possibly the prettiest species of Antelope I’ve seen, this one photographed in South Africa.
