Chiphadzuwa Showing Off Her Skills, Again!

My guests and I were extremely lucky to witness an amazing sighting involving Chiphadzuwa and a male puku.

It is that time of the season where the Sausage TreesĀ are dropping their red flowers. These flowers are a delicacy for the impala and puku. It seems that Chiphadzuwa uses this to her advantage, as she was waiting patiently in a Sausage Tree for the puku to position himself right underneath her. In a blink of an eye, Chiphadzuwa had lept from the tree on to the puku below. There was a tussle that happened between Chiphadzuwa and the puku all in a matter of seconds. She managed to suffocate the puku quickly and drag it off to a nearby bush.

Below is a sequence of images I managed to capture, showing the amazing sighting unfold in a space of 30 seconds!

    Amazing! Have you tried to string these images together to make a “video clip”? Would look great!
