A Blue-Headed lizzard - Only the males have blue heads which they bob up and down, probably as a mating attraction

A Gnu - [blue wildebeest], has quite a cheeky pose that I like, esp. with the tuft of grass in his mouth. These animals are affectionally known as the clowns of the bush due to their nature - they tend to break into jumps and runs in all directions just for the fun of it.

An Impala ram - He was very alert, wanting to cross a section which he perceived as a threat.

The same kit you're using, if I remember correctly - A canon 20d and the 100-400 lens
