The antelopes: Bushbuck and Topi

The handsome buckbuck is my favorite African antelope, graceful and elegant.

...As contrasted with the Topi. A guidebook I had along when I was in Africa in the 70s referred to it as "the rare plum-hued topi," but we saw thousands of them then, so it's a bit of a joke among those of us on that trip. Silly looking things, aren't they?
