Portrait of a female waterbuck
Female common Waterbuck (Kobus ellipsiprymnus) grazing peacefully on savanna grassland. Waterbucks consume various types of coarse grass seldom eaten by other grazing animals and must remain close to a water source. As its name would suggest, the waterbuck is a good swimmer and flees into water if pursued, although it is reported that they do not actually like going into water. Captured in Tarangire National Park, Tanzania.
