The other ID's are probably my fault as my memory plays tricks!
Tell me which ones and I'll correct them.
I get confused as to which ones are impalas, gazelles etc. Probably didn't pay enough attention!!!
I guess it did break site rules but it was interesting never the less!
Your first male impala doesn't look right. Horns too splayed, heavy in
the rear and I think some white on the rump. I've not been to Kenya
for, well 40 years, but could it be a grant's? Not sure if they are
found where you were.
Your second impala, female is definitely NOT an Impala. In southern
Africa I would say Springbok (I have daughter there and visit often)
but I don't think they go that far North - Is it a Thompson's?
I know what you mean about the different antelope - its like birds
really you have to see them in the flesh to get instant Ids, but then
shadows, herds and behaviour can still confuse.
And then there are the different races, e.g. back-faced impala.
Some lovely, lovely photos though!
