Early morning, a lone blue wildebeest (Connochaetes taurinus) grazes on the sparse dried grasses during the dry season, Mabula Private Game Reserve, Limpopo, South Africa.

Hi Terry, Superb !!!
He does look a bit thin. Great shot Terry.
Excellent capture. Living wild and free isn't exactly a bed of roses for most animals.
Slim pickings indeed. The wildebeest does look very thin. Excellent capture of him though.
Never seen one quite this thin excellent shot and caption
Nice shot of this fellow grazing -- with that sparse supply, he shouldn't have a problem with being over-weight. :-)
You really captured the sense of the sparse food source for this wildebeest--the thought that comes to mind is "a hard way to make a living!"
