    A couple of sambar hinds

    First ordinary pic was one of those "i saw something`s not right by that tree moments" so got an ID of her in the bino`s,there is one to her right a couple of metres also.

    I will back it in that num 2 is the last one of her`s and its preggo with her first calf



    a better look after i whistled her.




    They then broke very quickly after the whistle and commenced to place hide and seek over the other side of the creek gully.

    Older hind



    younger preggo.



    I effed up really good on the stag too,bah! He honked me from 20 yards in thick high bracken fern.I saw him and he whipped around and sorfed off.

    Thats the killer basil,the ground that they live in plus those huge radar like ears help them immensely.

    I took the last shots after they crossed the creek onto the 'dry side' and I was just uphill from them.
