Puku

The puku is a relatively common antelope in Zambia. It can be distinguished from the impala by its more rough coat. Pukus like the marshy grasslands in the Kafue and Luangwa valley. The southern most region where pukus occur is Chobe National Park in Botswana.

The early bird

According to the saying, ‘the early bird catches the worm.’ It was already late in the afternoon when I took this picture of a lilac breasted roller with its catch. Maybe we should add: the later bird catches the centipede!
