Birds of Pilansberg - Part 7 Final

There are always a lot of zebra about and they have the habt of giving you this icy stare.
This rude giraffe kept on sticking tongue out at me. :)
In a small pool from the recent rain, these two white rhino were wallowing and having a lovely mud bath.
The Eland is out largest antelope and there are not many of them around so I was lucky to manage this photograph of one.
In one of the bird hides this bird was trying to make friends with the one in the reflection but for some reason it was not getting much response. :)
This is one of or beautiful birds, the Brownhooded kingfisher. They are common and are found in most areas.
