Waterbuck Bulls Fighting

The other day I came across a magnificent scene, while driving in the veldt. I was actually on my way to the coast for a holiday and needed to do some last minute checks. When I saw two massive waterbuck bulls having a huge stand off.

This lasted for about 15 minutes, and they were so engrossed in this fight that they did not even notice me standing there. I managed to take some awesome shots, but unfortunately no video footage.

One of the bulls was wounded, but both survived the attack. I imagine that the dominant male was being challenged, but it seemed in the end the dominant male managed to hold onto his throne for another season.

I walked away feeling completely blessed to have been able to witness such an immensely dramatic scene of nature on my doorstep!
