In fact, I have a history of not getting these spotty characters to face the camera. By sheer random luck I should have at least a handful of images showing a face. However, I have very few, compared to the number of tail shots I have.
|I'll admit that these guys have marvelous tails|
I sometimes come close, getting a half decent photograph from the side, but still no mug shot.
|Almost there... But as always somehow managing to look in the other direction...|
Meanwhile the quest continues...
|One might think that this Genet might just as easily walked past the camera from the other direction, but by now we know better...|
A much more co-operative set of characters are the Bushbuck. The following two images show two females at different stages of maturity. It is interesting to note the gradual colour change.
|A female young Bushbuck (Bosbok - Tragelaphus sylvaticus) sniffing the ground|
|An older female sniffing the same spot|
However, the males are much darker.

But at least these guys don't mind smiling for the camera.
|Now, if only one of the Genet could be this co-operative...|
